They did it

Community foundations from the US and more than 15 other countries did it this last weekend - they held a conference where words like "racism," "discrimination" and "community impact" took center stage. From the opening comments by Emmett Carson, CEO of the Minneapolis Foundation to closing remarks by Avila Kilmurray of the Community Foundation of Northern Ireland, the need for community foundations to commit themselves to social justice was clearly articulated from the podium.

Now, the hard(er) work begins. I hope.
