Ana Marie Argilagos, President and CEO of Hispanics in Philanthropy facilitates the closing conversation for lucheon plenary session at United Philanthropy Forum's 2019 Annual Conference in Cleveland on July 17 with LaTosha Brown, co-founder of the Black Voters Matter, and Vanita Gupta, President and CEO of Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights about the role of philanthropy in our democracy.
United Philanthropy Forum has issued a statement, signed on by a number of our members, to firmly reject the attacks on our democracy on January 6 and confirm our commitment to strengthen our country for the betterment of all people.
We strongly condemn the actions of the terrorists and white supremacists who committed acts of sedition by brazenly attacking the seat of American government and democracy, the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.
The cornerstone of our country’s democracy is the administration of free and fair elections, where every U.S. citizen of voting age has the right to vote. During this election cycle, Americans have come out to exercise this right in record numbers.
What a strange and important time we are living through. Many of our institutions and democratic practices are being challenged, damaged and in some cases reaffirmed and strengthened. How does this impact the context and culture in which philanthropy supports institutions and practice of democracy? What are Forum members doing to strengthen civic engagement?
