It's Black History Month - and although Liberty Hill celebrates and honors the accomplishments and supports the actions, movements and events of Black-led social justice throughout the year, this month we'd like to highlight the Black-led organizing that has been happening in Los Angeles since Liberty Hill's inception.
African American Philanthropy
No matter the perspective or profession of the people at the Summit, it was very clear that At Liberty Hill's Uplifting Change Summit, everyone was extremely passionate about increasing the number of dollars that flow to African American social justice organizations in Los Angeles.
On Friday, I was one of more than 100 participants at Liberty Hill Foundation’s Uplifting Change Summit gathered to discuss strategies for African American philanthropy in Los Angeles. A lot of high powered people showed up, and by the end of the afternoon, White House staff had joined us as well. From L.A. to D.C., lots of people recognize how critically important it is for this city and this country to Uplift Change.
On February 18, Liberty Hill hosts the second annual Uplifting Change Summit, an invitational gathering of African-American and ally philanthropists.
