PUBLIC TALK

THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE FUNDED
Beyond the Nonprofit Industrial Complex

Thursday, May 22
4-5:45pm
Kresge Town Hall

************************************************************

Prof. Smith will discuss the collection edited by Incite!:

THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE FUNDED
Beyond the Nonprofit Industrial Complex

In this landmark collection, over 25 activists and scholars describe and
discuss the non-profit industrial complex (NPIC)—a system of relationships
between the state, the owning classes, foundations, and social service &
social justice organizations that results in the surveillance, control,
derailment, and everyday management of political movements.

Naming what some might call “the elephant in the room,” the contributors
to this groundbreaking and thought-provoking collection critical assess the
NPIC’s impact on the practice and imagination of the political left in the
U.S. Of central concern is the emerging dominance of the 501(c)(3)
non-profit, a model which some argue threatens to permanently eclipse
autonomous grassroots-movement building in the arena of social justice.

INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence is a national activist
organization of radical feminists of color advancing a movement to end
violence against women of color and their communities through direct
action, critical dialogue, and grassroots organizing.
