Economic Justice and System Change: How Should Nonprofits Respond?

Increasingly, economic inequality has become a central problem of US society. Since the 1970s, wealth and income inequality has risen rapidly, affecting the work of nearly all nonprofits. But how should nonprofit actors conceptualize the economy and address the many economic problems that affect the people we serve, especially today, as more than 20 million Americans have lost their jobs?

This panel was presented at the 2020 Nonprofit Finance and Sustainability Conference, sponsored by Propel Nonprofits and the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, on April 14, 2020, and is republished with their kind and generous permission.

In this one-hour webinar, panelists, who are all members of NPQ’s economic justice advisory committee, aim to provide some basic tools for thinking about and responding to economic challenges that affect us all.

Participating in the discussion are:
