Episode 120: Decolonizing Wealth with Edgar Villanueva

Apr 12, 12:00 AM

Last year, as part of "Money for Our Movements, A Social Justice Fundraising Conference," organized by Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training (GIFT), Babelito and FavyFav met Edgar Villanueva, an expert on social justice philanthropy. As a keynote speaker of the conference, Edgar spoke about his book, Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance. This book is a provocative analysis of the dysfunctional colonial dynamics at play in philanthropy and finance. In this episode, FavyFav calls Villanueva to talk about his new book, his career as a philanthropist for Native American communities, and the type of colonial traumas surrounding wealth accumulation in this country. Stay tuned till the end to hear some music recommendations from Babelito, and as always make sure to send your questions to AskLWLPod@gmail.com and we might read them on a future episode. #podsincolor #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #lwlpod
