Executive Director Derek Steele Participates on 2022 Nonprofit Finance Fund Panel
On June 29, 2022, the Nonprofit Finance Fund released the results of the State on the Nonprofit Sector Survey for Los Angeles County, which collected data, stories and advice from more than 200 nonprofit leaders in Los Angeles about the impact of the pandemic and racial justice.
Executive Director Derek Steele participated on a panel with other leaders in the nonprofit sector to discuss the survey findings and what needs to be done to develop a more equitable Los Angeles, particularly for BIPOC-led organizations.
“We can’t use 20th century ways of operating as if they can be the solution for today’s issues and needs. If we are going to have a people-centered, care-first centered and focused way of living and a way of being, we’re going to have to reformulate how we think about the nonprofit space. This is the centerpiece to transform the way that life can be for all of us to live whole and free lives,” Steele said.
