For more information, email revolutionaryfunding@gmail.com or call 312.750.0730.This event is co-sponsored by Incite! Chicago, the Jane Addams Hull House Museum, the Horoya Giving Circle, the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network, Women and Girl’s Collective Action Network, Young Women’s Action Team, and the Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council.How did politics shape the birth of the non-profit model? How does 501(c)(3) status allow the state to co-opt political movements? Are we activists or careerists? How do we fund the movement outside this complex?

A massive and largely unregulated industry, the US non-profit sector is the world’s seventh largest economy.

Many social justice organizations have joined this world, often blunting political goals to satisfy government and foundation mandates.

Urgent and visionary, The Revolution Will Not Be Funded is an unbeholden exposé of the “non-profit industrial complex” and its quietly devastating role in managing dissent.
