What We're Reading: February Equity & Social Justice Edition

Thursday, February 7, 2019
Hi, from Alice and Daniel, your Equity and Social Justice team at Northern California Grantmakers. We'd like to introduce you to our "What We're Reading" column. We’ve been cooking up programs and ideas for engaging the NCG community on equity and social justice issues. We thought a monthly curation of what we’re reading might spark conversation and action.
Additionally, we'd like to share what you're reading too. If you have articles, reports, or tools to share on addressing ability, class, gender, race, and sexuality, please reach out to us.
