In the hospital recovering from surgery, Leroy Mitchell was depressed and without purpose. The NFL was the long game. There was no back-up plan that interested him. Fortunately the well-timed gift of a Bell Hooks' book from his mentor changed his life. It offered a new way to view his life, his maleness, his future. The conversation on colonial masculinity has opened up my eyes to how much it defines our view of our gender roles, regardless of our sexual identity. Powerful conversation. Leroy Mitchell is a Masculinity and Mental Health Trainer for the Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective (BEAM). Favorite movie: Frankie Ocean (Link to Thinking 'Bout You) Favorite words: "Integrity means being whole, unbroken, undivided. It describes a person who has unified the parts of his or her or their personality, so that there is no longer a split in the soul." Instagram @365brothers Are you our next guest? - Let's talk.

Ken welcomes long-time friend of the podcast, Dr. Theon Hill. Dr. Hill is a professor at Wheaton College, an Aspen Civil Society Fellow and emerging social intellectual. The two reminisce over the first episode of the BWM podcast where Dr. Hill was Ken's very first guest. Then, they have a lively reaction to the Grove City College report that condemns Critical Race Theory and disassociates from chapel speaker, Dr. Jemar Tisbey. Dr. Hill expresses his weariness over invitations to debate the realities of racism in America - he's done with those fruitless conversations. Theon explains the engagement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Bell Hooks, Margaret Thatcher and others to explore values and ventures that lead to the common good in local communities. He has developed a focus on local black-owned businesses to expand markets and reach, creating jobs and careers in community implementing his work at the Copenhagen Business School. He shares the influence of Cornell West, James Baldwin, Malcolm X and Eddie Glaude, Jr., who has become his personal mentor and friend. Dr. Hill admits his concern that democracy is slipping away in America, unable to embrace pluralism. In view of the Supreme Court's attempt to reverse Roe v. Wade, the two discuss the problems of constitutional "originalism." There is a cloud of witnesses we need to hear. Theon is committed to international empowerment and his church's commitment to justice and mercy.    SHOW NOTESBecome a Patreon - www.patreon.com/beachedwhitemaleSupport the show

Link mua sách: https://shorten.asia/hhXruXbk Trái với những cuốn sách vốn học thuật hóa các vấn đề về nữ quyền, bell hooks chọn cho mình một lối đi khác biệt, gần gũi nhằm diễn giải, bóc tách nữ quyền thành các vấn đề nhỏ, có hệ thống và quan trọng nhất, dễ hiểu với tất cả mọi người. Cuốn sách không chỉ khái quát lại lịch sử phát triển nữ quyền, mẫu thuẫn căn nguyên khởi sinh phong trào này mà còn đi thẳng vào trình bày quan niệm đúng đắn về các vấn đề giới cũng như cách nữ quyền đương đầu với những vấn đề đó. Từ những vấn đề thiết thực cận kề phụ nữ hằng ngày như giáo dục về giới, đoàn kết phụ nữ, tự do tính dục, chống lại áp bực và thống trị giới… đến những vấn đề góc khuất ít ai quan tâm như tâm linh trong nữ quyền hay quyền lợi cần tạo dựng cho đồng tính nữ, xu hướng phát triển của nữ quyền trong tương lai. Đồng thời, bà cũng không ngần ngại phê phán những trào lưu không chính mạch của nữ quyền, khi lý thuyết nữ quyền bị vận dụng sai lệch, đi ngược lại mục đích giải phóng giới chung mà phục vụ cho lợi ích nhóm, lợi ích giai cấp hay tệ hơn, chống lại phụ nữ ở tầng lớp thấp. Bằng một giọng điệu truyền cảm, tích cực, nhãn quan bao quát rộng khắp và tầm nhìn của một học giả, nhà hoạt động nữ quyền suốt hơn ba thập kỷ, bell hooks đã viết một cuốn sách xứng đáng được “gối đầu” ở khắp mọi nơi, từ trường học, công sở, gia đình hay ngang giá với bất cứ nghiên cứu chuyên sâu nào về nữ quyền. Cuốn sách, theo đó, trở thành diễn ngôn đầy mạnh mẽ, thách thức mọi vấn đề nữ quyền ngày nay phải đối mặt và tranh luận đến cùng nhằm giải phóng phụ nữ khỏi bạo lực, sắc tộc, giai cấp và lao động nặng nhọc.

En este episodio, compartimos el Capítulo I. "Claridad: palabras de amor", por la escritora Gloria Jean Watkins a.k.a bell hooks, contenido en el libro "Todo sobre el amor". Gloria Jean Watkins (Hopkinsville, Kentucky; 25 de septiembre de 1952), conocida como bell hooks (escrito en minúsculas), es una escritora, feminista y activista social estadounidense. El nombre "bell hooks" deriva del de su bisabuela materna, Bell Blair Hooks. El enfoque de la escritura de hooks ha sido la interseccionalidad entre raza, clase y género, y lo que ella describe como su capacidad para producir y perpetuar sistemas de opresión y dominación de clase. Ha publicado más de 40 libros y numerosos artículos académicos, ha aparecido en documentales y participado en conferencias públicas. Se ha ocupado de la raza, la clase y el género en la educación, el arte, la historia, la sexualidad, los medios de comunicación y el feminismo. Observando la falta de voces diversas en la teoría feminista popular, bell hooks publicó el libro Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center (Teoría Feminista: De Margen a Centro) en 1984. En este libro, ella argumenta que esas voces han sido marginadas, y dice: "Estar en el margen es ser parte del todo, pero fuera del cuerpo principal". Hooks argumentó que si el feminismo busca hacer que las mujeres sean iguales a los hombres, entonces es imposible en la sociedad occidental ya que no todos los hombres son iguales. Ella comentó, "Las mujeres de clase baja y los grupos pobres, particularmente las que no son blancas, no habrían definido la liberación de las mujeres como mujeres que ganan igualdad social con los hombres ya que continuamente se les recuerda en su vida cotidiana que las mujeres no comparten un estatus social común".

While they read as paintings, the artworks are rich with content, rooted in feminist concerns and as the artist stated, honoring “female narratives that are often neglected from history.” They also celebrate and were inspired by sewing and quilt making as well as Jones's Appalachian heritage. The title of the presentation, To Hold Tender This Land, a line from African American author, activist and feminist from Kentucky, Bell Hooks' Appalachian Elegy: Poetry and Place, exemplifies Jones's commitment to honoring strong and influential women and places that inspire her and her artwork.   This debut exhibition of new work at the Gallery coincides with Jones's solo exhibition of related and larger paintings at the Contemporary Dayton in Dayton, Ohio that opened earlier in February.

Are you ready to process with us? In episode 26, our season one finale, we process all that we experienced throughout season one, all the great guests and lessons learned. This episode ends with us explaining our vision for season two. Note: If you simply want to hear our vision for season two, fast forward to the last twelve minutes of this episode. Our intention for season one was to be your vulnerability hub and, in the process, break down shame in all its forms. Due to harmful cultural conditioning many of us feel sexual shame, shame related to mental health struggles, or shame related to our identity. Our guests who were willing to do the emotional labor required to open deeply gave anyone listening an incredible gift with their vulnerable life story. Shame cannot exist were there are those willing to speak their truth. As shame breaks down, we create a more loving, connected world through vulnerability. Collectively, as guests told their life story, from struggle and pain to meaning and triumph, much trauma was unveiled. And as Bell Hooks says, ““Abuse and neglect negate love. Care and affirmation, the opposite of abuse and humiliation, are the foundation of love. No one can rightfully claim to be loving when behaving abusively.” If season one often unveiled what is not love, then season two will reveal what love is. But not just any love, love that is pushed into the shadows: kinky love, non-monogamous love, neurodiverse love and more. So, we hope that you join us for this finale episode as we chew on what we loved best and what we learned. Then, please continue on with us for season two as we continue to dare to open deeply, but this time into the realms of love.

Photo by aisvri on UnsplashI wonder.I mean, honestly, this morning, I have an image of Ukrainian grandmas on my mind. As I write this, as I say this, What would a benevolent world actually look like? It's been on my mind all week. This week has been interesting. I think what I came to at least for my own world is that a benevolent world would be moving a lot more slowly. It seems as though it's the actions and thoughts that happen in the moment really quickly without thought that really sort of push forward a world that's less benevolent. I have a tiny story — Yesterday.I did a simple seemingly benevolent thing for one of my progeny. I made them a smoothie. And no, no one was hurt. But in counseling later that day, this smoothie making became the event that helped me unravel what keeps me from benevolence in my own life. So I'm going to try to try to unravel that here.That thing is safety.I made a smoothie filled with lots of really healthy stuff. Also delicious, just sweet enough. They drank most of it, but not all of it. And so what I ended up doing was even bringing that tiny amount with us in the car. So that they could have one more chance is I implored them to finish the whole thing.He very politely said, no, thank you to their credit and stayed relatively calm while I was, I, I think that the voice I have right now, perfectly sort of mimics what my voice was that morning. Come on. Just one more sip. By the time I got back home, I was aware enough to realize that something was going on.I actually forced myself to measure it out and show myself clearly what was going on that what had been left with negligible. If I were really worried about malnutrition, I don't think that that was a problem. So what was this all about? Obviously not nutrition. The feeling in my body when the smoothie was refused, or again, this tiny amount of smoothie was refused.It was one of foreboding and dread. I'm really not proud of admitting this. In fact, I hesitated, hesitated as I was like, come on, just say it out loud.But it's true.As I drove home from counseling and ran a couple errands on my way home. I was unpacking more, what I think was going on. And I think it is this universal feeling that comes up for all of us, but all of us in a slightly different way.Robert Sapolsky, the Stanford. I believe he's a biologist, almost sure of that. He's written a book called Behave and has several lovely videos out there talking about his work and, and in one of them, he explains that the love hormone, oxytocin, amplifies feelings of love for people who are in our “in group”. But it also amplifies feelings of not love or more exclusion for people who are outside our in group that sets up something kind of interesting.Think about it. We all need to create a sense of I'll call it Eden. A sense of safety. A perimeter around ourselves within which we're at ease.I don't really like noticing that I do this, but I think it's key. I think it's really that key to why benevolence is so hard. Sometimes even with people we adore.My castle walls are built around an idea that our family in our family, we are healthy. Yikes. As you may be aware, there have been marauding vandals and thieves and whatnot banging on my castle walls for the past couple of years, past few years. My castle is also built around an idea that we're immune to violence.Violence happens out there to other people. I'm still not really ready to talk about the super publicly, but it's important for this essay to mention that extreme violence at the hands of the system did happen to our family about a year ago. As I say this, my hands are shaking and my heart is racing.The system metaphorically took a battleram and knocked out one of the metaphorical walls in my metaphorical castle.Metaphorically, but also in a well, in a realer way, realer way, my family, my Eden became fragile.And so I can very much understand not being benevolent. It's literally why I'm in counseling.Back to the smoothie because the smoothie drinking episode deconstructed in counseling began to help me unpack all of this. As I drove home from counseling, a police car passed me and as it did, so I literally sat up straighter tensing up because they are that symbol of the system who introduced violence into our family.I've found my body aware and then. I thought to myself, if we're all quiet, no one gets hurt.And then less humorous a flashback to a scene that had come up in counseling, a scene of early kind of violence in my life at gymnastics. I would have been around 11 years old and at least once we had to sit cross-legged along a wall perfectly still for two hours.And then there's another tiny scene I had just finished bars and was moving to floor, which was a brand new spring floor. And back in those days, very few gyms had those Olympic quality spring floors. My hand was bleeding as it would, uh, from the bars they would rip. Um, so I showed my coach out of fear of getting blood on his floor instead though he took my head hand, considered it a moment of weakness on my part.I think he clearly didn't understand that I was worried about the blood on his floor and was thinking that I was upset because I had a little bit of blood on my hand. He took my hand, yelled at me for being such a baby and ripped this skin off the blister, which was common back in those days.The ntold me to rub chalk in it, which again was common. But I think the key there was the importance of remaining, perfectly neutral showing absolutely nothing on my face. So composure and we won't get hurt. Composure as adults raged was definitely how I stayed safe as a child.In the newsletter I mentioned another early childhood memory, my infamous rubber band incident. I clearly remember that teacher — grade one. I was six. I liked her. She was really lovely. This one day we were all quietly stringing rubber bands onto a grid of nails that had been kind of nailed into a little wooden block.It's hard to explain. I was in a progressive school. I think it was math. I'm not sure how one rubber band got loose to this day. I remember the name Allen as the little boy who shot the rubber band. It was an accident. Immediately though, the teacher commanded all heads down and we stayed there for what seemed like an eternity.I know in this case, it wasn't that. But as she admonished us about the dangers of rubber bands, and I remember being also at the same time, really scared and also understanding how funny this was, even at the time, I really can't remember how it was resolved, but all I know is that we all knew then that it was an accident and that none of us could say that because she wanted a bad guy to punish.So these stories taken together. It's why we can't have nice things. I'm only kidding a little. That was another thought that had come up.As I drove home from counseling, all this came together and I realized that I occasionally create little talismans, little incantations. To keep my personal Eden secure to keep my castle walls strong unconsciously, of course. And it's possible that I making too much of this smoothie, a Tempest in a smoothie cup, perhaps, but also I think there's at least a grain of truth here.There's a feeling in the air recently of needing to magically create safe spaces around certain groups where we feel secure. Certain incantations we do to help delineate a perimeter within which our in-group resides. I don't have any answers. As my dear husband always says, when I bring up the unhoused: “Well, as a Christian, shouldn't you invite them to live with us?But he's got a point he really does. Here's what I think is impossible to do without inviting the sacred into our lives. Not the spiritual exactly, but sacred love, the holy. I think it's impossible to do benevolence.Chances are the unhoused in my city would like a house not to live with me. And chances are certain people who are not in my in-group are perfectly happy being, not in my in-group. We don't all have to have a kumbaya moment together necessarily. What we need, I think goes beyond oxytocin, beyond science, beyond politics.What I need, what we need, I think is to inject an acceptance of sacred love into our daily lives. I think it's essential. This comes not only from my admittedly huge bias as a Christian, but also from my recent book. Books that I've read, not written obviously, but the master in his Emissary by Iain McGilchrist and the Dawn of Everything by the two Davids, I always forget both of their names Wengrew and Graeber.And I think we need possibly a little less spirituality. Bell Hooks said “I'm often struck by the dangerous narcissism fostered by spiritual rhetoric that pays so much attention to individual self-improvement. And so little to the practice of love within the context of community.”She was onto something there.I'm going to leave us here.I think all this needs to settle. I think I need a cup of tea, a long walk.And I welcome feedback about these oral essays as well as the conversations that I've had next week, as I mentioned is likely going to be a conversation that I've worked on for over a year. Now it needed time in contemplate. I am enjoying sprinkling these shorter essays in now.

As my Instagram community continues to grow, I keep hearing louder and louder calls from my female followers for men to be more vulnerable. Simultaneously, the men in my communities say that they aren't so sure the women in their lives really want our vulnerability. Many men are gun shy – having been burned from opening up emotionally in the past…only to have it work against them in a variety of ways, which will discuss in this episode. So to bridge this vulnerability gap, I decided to run a little survey in my Instagram community where I asked a very simple question of the men: What would you need to be more vulnerable with your romantic partner? I got about 100 illuminating responses from these men…of which I've culled down 5 core themes which Bryan and I will be discussing in today's episode. In this Episode: The ways men have been burned in the past by being vulnerable What Brené Brown and Bell Hooks have to say about why men are hesitant to be vulnerable The 5 things men need to be more vulnerable with you What the man's responsibility is in each of these 5 categories If you're in a relationship, this would be an excellent episode to listen to together and discuss afterwards (or if you're exploring a new relationship dynamic with a partner, it could make for a great virtual date and discussion)… …or if you're rolling solo like me and just want to learn how to have better, deeper more vulnerable conversations, this episode is for you.

Did you know... Two-thirds of Americans report feeling lonely, and that's even before the pandemic. The average American hasn't made a new friend in the last five years. Loneliness is as toxic as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Today, psychologist and friendship expert Dr. Marisa Franco shares her research in the science of friendship and the powerful benefits platonic friendships have on our overall wellbeing. In a season of social fragmentation and rampant loneliness, join us as we provide the tools needed to make, maintain and deepen friendships. SHOW NOTES: Struggling after a breakup in her 20s, Marisa built a support system that taught her romantic love was not the only love that mattered. “It's a gift to give love just as much as it is to receive love.” For friendships to happen, sociologists have determined we need continuous unplanned interaction and shared vulnerably. Research finds that loneliness is as toxic as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Make new friends but keep the old: Assume others like you because if you assume rejection, it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. The Liking Gap is the difference between how much we think another person likes us and how much they actually like us. Most people underestimate how much another person liked them and the more self-critical, the more pronounced this is. Friendship networks are shrinking. We are four to five times more likely to have no friends than we were decades ago. Having a trusted confidant is the best way to fight against depression. Embrace vulnerability. The “beautiful mess effect” reminds us that we take a more negative view of our own vulnerability than we do of others and by having the courage to show our vulnerability, we will become more connected with others. When our mental health is suffering, we tend to focus more on ourselves which affects our relationships. In his book Bowling Alone, Robert Putnam finds the television as the biggest culprit for why we disengage with society because it creates pseudo-connection and lethargy. Marisa's research has taught her the importance of working through problems with friends and recognizing the gift of not only receiving love but giving it. Marisa encourages to meet others with habitual open-mindedness. "Anything you do to better your connection with others will also better your mental health and wellbeing." Five ways to elevate friendships: Assume others like you. Initiate new friendships. Tell your friends how much you love and value them. Be more vulnerable. Try to accept your friends for who they are and not what you think they should be. Interested in being a better friend? Take Dr. Marisa Franco's Friendship Survey here. Due to publish in September, pre-order Dr. Marisa Frano's book Plantonic here. DR. MARISA FRANCO'S LIVE INSPIRED 7 Q. What is the best book you've ever read? A. All About Love by Bell Hooks. Q.

Com e para além de Freire, hooks parte de suas experiências (como mulher, negra, professora e educadora) no desenvolvimento de reflexões que nos convocam a pensar uma educação libertadora que envolva crítica e acolhimento; uma educação libertadora em que a prática se faça presente e que o engajamento entre professoras/es e estudantes ocorra de tal forma que conduza à consciência sobre o lugar de cada um/a na e para além da sala de aula. Nessa perspectiva, busca-se analisar alguns aspectos da educação libertadora segundo bell hooks e em que medida tal educação pode contribuir para a superação de distintas formas de opressão e dominação sociais.

Each episode will be a short mix of breakbeats and samples from my collection, overlaid with excerpts from some of my favorite inspirational, radical people. When I was thinking of who to feature first, my partner Bina made the great suggestion of starting with the incredible bell hooks, who sadly passed last month. bell hooks wrote about love, Black liberation, feminism, and so much more. Her book "All About Love" was and is very important to me. I highly recommend everyone seek out her work, especially those involved in the educational or academic fields. Many of the interviews that I excerpted on this tape were from a series hosted by the New School, and I hope everyone checks out the full episodes (linked from my Soundcloud page). There is no way to do justice to legendary people like bell hooks in such a short little mix. These are just a few excerpts I found compelling. The goal of this mixtape series is after a year, have a nice little compilation of voices, beats, breaks and knowledge. I hope everyone digs it, and searches out more from all of those featured.

How and where do race, gender, class, art, and capitalism come together? That question was at the heart of some 30 books written by author bell hooks. That was actually the pen name that Gloria Jean Watkins adopted for herself. But being a black female activist and feminist also often made her a target. In her 1999 book Remembered Rapture hooks recalled some of her challenges as a writer and activist and that's when I have the chance to meet her for the first of our several conversations.

As a child, hooks performed poetry readings of work by Gwendolyn Brooks, Langston Hughes, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. She earned a BA from Stanford University, an MA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a PhD from the University of California-Santa Cruz.hooks was the author of over 30 books, including Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism (1981), named by Publisher's Weekly as one of the 20 most influential books published in 20 years; Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center (1984); Yearning: Race, Gender, and Cultural Politics (1991), winner of the American Book Award/Before Columbus Foundation Award; Teaching to Transgress (1994); the children's book Homemade Love (2002), named the Bank Street College Children's Book of the Year; and the poetry collections And There We Wept (1978) and When Angels Speak of Love (2005), and Appalachian Elegy: Poetry and Place (2012), winner of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association's Best Poetry Award.Throughout her life, hooks explored the relationship between sexism, racism, and economic disparity in books aimed at scholars and at the public. In an interview with Bomb Magazine, she said, “To think of certain ways of writing as activism is crucial. What does it matter if we write eloquently about decolonization if it's just white privileged kids reading our eloquent theory about it? Masses of black people suffer from internalized racism, our intellectual work will never impact on their lives if we do not move it out of the academy. That's why I think mass media is so important.” hooks was the winner of the Writer's Award from the Lila-Wallace—Reader's Digest Fund, and has been named one of our nation's leading public intellectuals by the Atlantic.

OFB has a budget of $34M, with 200 staff, 63k annual donors, and 40k annual volunteers. OFB Community Philanthropy: Theory of Change, Strategic Priorities, Key Hallmarks of Love, Staff Bill of Rights bell hooks defines love as “the extension of one's spiritual growth  'the will to extend one's self for the the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth.”Focusing on Fundraising Goals is Harmful, Let's Measure Love Instead by Vivien TrinhHow to Measure a Year. What about Love? On the OFB website“Seasons of Love” from Rent!Risk: We talked about risk and Nathan names that “risk”in changing the practices and tools of doing the work, is to be questioned. That one perspective is the fear of change or fear of something different. Vivien invites us to think about risk, as defined by who might be harmed by our practices and tools...and to center the healing of those folx. Process: Here are some of the processes and practices OFB discussed within this episode...Vivien and a few folks started an Equity in Fundraising work group within their department to casually explore community-centric ideas. They later created a “Love” working group as well.When Nathan came on 2 years ago, they began to focus their work towards building new practicesVivien mentions that unpacking “love” as a word through introspection and team conversation, was the kernel that helped them move forward in designing the “how” of measuring love. They focused on how love might inform their values and how it could change what philanthropy could mean.OFB celebrates Shiree Teng, who they partnered with in the design of the staff self-assessment. The creation of the tool was influenced by her brown paper, “ Measuring Love on the Journey for Justice. (we didn't talk about this on the pod)Performance Metrics: One tool they developed is a staff self-assessment, with the purpose of the assessment focused on reflecting on a staff person's individual  work over the past 6 month period. Their assessment asks questions like: Do I feel like my work as a relationship manager or a gift entry specialist is values-aligned with myself in this moment? Do I feel like I am making meaningful change in the world? Am I having hard conversations with donors? Am I bringing them along a political journey?In their database, OFB has the ability to code contact reports that our relationship managers have with their donors around these indicators of love.Vivien shares: “...the hope is that we're collecting this information so that we can pull it out and analyze, not like in a punitive way of like, you're not having enough hard conversations with donors, but, if you're not able to code your contact reports with these indicators, what is that telling you about where you are in your professional career at this moment? Do you feel like you're engaging in the work in a way that's meaningful to you and if not, how do we make it happen? What do you need personally, in order to grow, in your career in a way that is pulling away from that centralizing of money?” They propose is to rethink what data we capture and to encourage behavior toward financial goals and encourage behavior toward growth and self-reflection.In creating a collective definition of “love” they identified aspects of love like growth, shared values, care. They later shared that  they have a full “Love Indicators” list complete with a Bill of Rights and definitions! These include: Actions for the Common Good, Care, Client Centered, Community, Engagement, Equity, Growth, Partnership, Respect, and Shared Values.Nathan points out that they have also created other instruments to assess other aspects of love.Another tool is the donor survey, where they ask in 10-15 contexts, whether and how a donor considers their gift to be a contribution of love. “...do you consider your donation...an expression of your love for the organization, the mission? For the vision? For your neighbors?...the systemic inequity that drives hunger? ...Do you experience your supportive Oregon, Oregon food bank as an expression of love? And I think on average 60% or more of our donors agreed strongly, like, yes I do.” Vivien mentions that the donor survey allows the team to be bolder and confident in their work. Nathan mentions that they can be bolder and more strategic in their messaging to facilitate the political journey and facilitate “love” for other (in one example, the love of their surveyed community towards immigrant communities could be increased by political education.)Another practice involves prospect development/portfolio management. In this field of practice, OFB is starting to ask themselves questions around the transformational outcome of a relationship. “It doesn't have to be money. It can be a sharing of a story that helps us move, our donors through a political journey, because they have either lived experience, with hunger or with, discrimination or lived experience of systemic oppression. It could be, they have a rich network of, or they have a community that we haven't engaged with in the past that they can introduce Oregon food bank to. It provides an opportunity to recognize all the different ways that people can contribute to their community that can take action.”Nathan also talks about how they operate with equity not equality, so they are not able to “treat everyone the same.” Instead they focus on increasing the likelihood that an individual will have a love-centered and transformative experience. Transactional to transformational. They later shared that they'd like to celebrate Justice Funders and ongoing collaboration with Mario Lugay, Senior Innovation Director, and they acknowledge the Just Transition for Philanthropy (and Just Transition) framework.They mention decreasing the size of portfolios to allow staff to spend more time connecting with their donors, and paying attention to wether these relationships are being tended to with mutual care, respectful interactions and community-centrism.Nathan notes that OFB is in the silent phase of a large campaign and as such, they are prioritizing donors that can have high capacity, but within that, they are looking at and prioritizing values alignment, love, and vision.Vivien mentions cross-referencing amongst multiple (databases and platforms) places, to better understand how the community member(s) engage with Oregon Food Bank. Are they interacting in multiple ways? Have they donated, volunteered or taken a political action? Vivien mentions that when an individual is engaging on multiple platforms/ways, they are a better candidate for connection/portfolio work. Vivien and Nathan alluded to other tools they are using internally, but we did not have time to discuss in the show!Big pieces of wisdom:Vivien ”you can move quickly and you can leverage the sense of urgency that I think sometimes I shy away from that urgency is important when it is focused on justice. And in that urgency, the point is not to bring everyone along is to center people at the margins.”Nathan “the power of our people and the wisdom of the collective and the possibilities that live at the intersection of the power of our people and the wisdom of our collective. Like we have so much opportunity in this profession to do something extraordinary, transformational and very, very different than what's been done before.We're the ones in these roles keep your best practices. I'll take my better practices. They haven't been designed yet, but I believe in the wisdom of our collective to do that kind of designing. If those best practices don't seem to be working. And I don't think the limitation of that is just how we work. I think that our field can transform philanthropy by working differently than we ever have before. Like take back that power. We absolutely have it. And in doing so, I think our communities can be and will be better served.”
