Decolonizing Wealth:

A Conversation with Edgar Villanueva & Courtney E. Martin 

 


What if we could use wealth to heal rather than cause further harm? What if money was spent trying out concepts that shatter current structures and systems that have turned much of the world into one vast market?

 

This is the core argument explored by author and nationally-recognized philanthropy expert Edgar Villanueva in his new book Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance (Berrett-Koehler Publishers). Using his own personal experiences as a Native American grant-maker and foundation executive (along with field data and dozens of funder interviews) Villanueva reveals the racial and colonialist dynamics at play in philanthropy and finance, including banks, investment funds, and aid organizations.

 

On October 24th, we invite you to a special Decolonizing Wealth book event featuring an in-depth conversation between Villanueva and Award-Winning Journalist Courtney E. Martin about the book and how institutions that control access to money can better serve the needs of Indigenous people and communities of color. Hosted by Northern California Grantmakers, Justice Funders, International Funders for Indigenous Peoples (IFIP) and The Whitman Institute, this free, invitation-only event will include a Q&A and reception featuring a book-signing with the author.

 

Decolonizing Wealth will be released internationally on October 16th and is available for pre-order now at DecolonizingWealth.com. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

FREE BOOKS for the first 50 registrations courtesy of the Swift Foundation.
