Our team member Vanessa Thomas, who directs our Global Programs, participated in the Advancing Justice: Reparations & Racial Healing Summit in Accra, Ghana.
In a global world ensnared in the legacy of colonialism and white supremacy, we aim to bring out the truth about our histories and the subsequent charge to repair. Decolonizing Wealth Project works globally to disrupt the existing systems of moving and controlling capital using education and healing programs, radical reparative giving, and storytelling.
The United States was built on the practice of enslavement of Indigenous people and Africans. The British Empire was the largest the world has ever seen. Centuries of extraction and brutalization were at play in industrializing the U.K. and the U.S., and philanthropy, a glaring representation of ill-gotten wealth, should be righting these wrongs.
The way forward is charted
There is a growing call to decolonize wealth and to liberate philanthropy. We are on the forefront of the movement and through Liberated Capital are offering opportunities for you to heed the call. While moving money to marginalized communities, Liberated Capital is engaging donors of all races and ethnicities in the transformative work of healing that is required to close the race wealth gap.
