Publisher: The Communications Network
Description:
The Communications Network began a study in 2018 to learn how to best promote and advance equity communications practices for leaders working in communications for good. In recognition of the urgent challenge posed by racism, the Network decided to focus this study on advancing racial equity. Through an environmental scan, interviews and surveys, the study sought to address two key questions: 1) What does the current landscape of social sector communications practices look like as it pertains to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)?; and 2) What do communications that effectively promote DEI look like?

Publisher: Center for Effective Philanthropy
Description:
The second in a series of three reports from CEP exploring the foundation response to the unprecedented challenges of 2020, this publication examines changes in foundations' work to address anti-Black racism and to promote racial equity. A survey of over 200 foundation leaders found that almost all respondents reported placing new, or more, focus on supporting Black, Latino, and lower-income communities. Additionally, most foundation leaders reported reckoning with racism and paying greater attention to racial equity in their work. Nevertheless, respondents admitted that there remains still significant room for further progress, and it remains to be seen how deep and sustained this new focus will be.

Publisher: Funders Concerned About AIDS
Description:
This infographic - distilled from FCAA’s most recent annual resource tracking report, Philanthropic Support to Address HIV/AIDS in 2018 - provides a first deep-dive on HIV-related philanthropy addressing the needs of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities in the United States. Of approximately $200 million in funding directed towards HIV/AIDS in the U.S. in 2018, close to $30 million was aimed towards BIPOC communities. Of that figure, just over $8 million specifically addressed the needs of African Americans with HIV. Compared to other regions, the South received a higher proportion of HIV/AIDS funding to BIPOC and African American-Specific communities.

Publisher: Building Movement Project
Description:
This report presents data collected from over 400 nonprofit leaders of color about the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent protests against anti-Black racism on their communities, organizations, and themselves. Respondents expressed concern over the continuing pandemic, persistent inequities, and their organizations' capacity to meet future community needs. Women of color, in particular, feel that they are bearing the brunt of the current crises. Responses also showed that the long-term sustainability of POC-led nonprofits is uncertain, and those working to address anti-Black racism see an urgent need for more investment.

Description:
This report from the Council on Foundations, Philanthropy California, and Dalberg Advisors outlines how the US philanthropic sector is responding to the 2020 crises and the opportunities to shift practices and share power to enable communities and the industry to #BuildBackBetter. The authors surveyed 250 foundation leaders and conducted more than a dozen in-depth interviews to assess how the sector is changing in three ways: resourcing, priorities, and internal operations. The study found significant shifts in grantmaking practices yet few examples of increased power sharing in philanthropy. Among notable shifts in practice, the report found that 60 percent of responding organizations increased giving beyond planned levels for 2020 and over 85 percent of respondents are adopting flexible grantmaking practices for existing grantees.

Publisher: New York University Brennan Center for Justice
Description:
This report examines the long-term economic effects of conviction and imprisonment and the ways in which mass incarceration and systemic inequities have exacerbated the racial wealth gap in the United States. It demonstrates that people involved in the criminal justice system tend to earn significantly less over the course of their lives than otherwise would be the case. Among other factors, missed opportunities, inadequate reentry services, and social stigma contribute to this link between imprisonment and poverty. The authors provide a set of recommended policy actions to address the inequitable consequences of conviction and incarceration.
