Equity/equality feels like oppression to those in power/privilege. The risk is often focused around the discomfort of those in power, and not the healing of these efforts.

+1 “Not why but how…”
Sandra Flores
01:52:47
Foundation Boards need to be a part of this conversion. They are the ones who will decide to embrace risk, as you have shared, or not. Too often those who actualize are tempered by their Boards.
Jennifer Near (she/her) Pennacook/Wabanaki
01:54:00
++++ 1 Sandra, and we invite and structure our Maestra programming in a way that invites board and staff to participate together

Sandra Flores

Would it be fair to say we are talking about disinvestment of the police so we could reinvest in community?
Sequoia Thompson (She/Her/Queen) SCG
02:00:36
Elandria wonderfully expanded on that topic of Black Organizing never being siloed. In Session one.
Maisha Quint
02:01:28
+1 Sandra, yes!
Jennifer Near (she/her) Pennacook/Wabanaki
02:02:05

Sandra Flores

Next Question: What does a police free/ state sanctioned violence free look like? What does it take to get there from your perspective and role in the work? What would philanthropy need to do to support this vision?
Kimi Mojica (they/she) | JF
02:13:48
+1 Deep solidarity, not charity

Discussion Prompts:1. How do the calls to defund the police and abolition challenge your edges as an individual? How might this be showing up in your work?
Dana (She/Her) | Justice Funders | Ohlone Land
