Dear NPQ Reader,
The spring 2022 edition of Nonprofit Quarterly Magazine is on it’s way!
At the end of 2021, NPQ convened an advisory committee on racial justice and asked the question: What is the edge of current racial justice work? The group converged around “building pro-Black organizations,” and the spring edition topic came into being.
In this issue, we’re moving beyond DEI (bodies at the table), racial equity (measuring POC against white people), and perhaps even racial justice (the righting of racial wrongs), to an actual focus on what Black people need to thrive (building pro-Black).
Here are a few spring 2022 issue highlights…
