Where are we coming from?

A few weeks ago, I read The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex, a great collection of essays published by INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence. There's a popular view that the nonprofit model is the answer to worldwide inequality and injustice, and the book pulls the curtain on this potentially false assumption.

Key points of the book:
  • working hard does not mean "complicated" work (e.g., mired in paperwork or RFPs)
  • causes are driven by passion, not careers
  • the revolution will not happen in 1 year, or 2
Which leads to Book Drive Social.
