From the ED’s seat this Earth Week is me grappling with the understanding of the Non Profit Industrial Complex where our social justice movements can get monitored and controlled to “make the world safe for capitalism.” Of course, much has been written and theorized about alternatives as a counter response. The inimitable Ruth Wilson Gilmore has argued for attributes for non profits to be effective: “a clear mission and purpose” and being “funded by their constituents”. I think of San Francisco Transit Riders’ preparedness in this regard. Our mission to elevate the voice of riders to improve public transit in the city and the 600+ dues paying members, you all, fueling our engine to make a difference in the cacophony. How do we deepen our impact?
