AFP-NM is committed to building trust with the community, authentically engaging in anti-racism and equity work, and establishing both strong leadership and communication in delivering support to New Mexico fundraisers and nonprofit professionals. We strive to actively combat white supremacy culture, center the voices of those most impacted by colonization and discrimination, and serve as a model for fundraisers and nonprofit organizations led by those who value inclusion, diversity, equity, and access.
Many of us in the nonprofit sphere have adjusted our language from 'nonprofit' to 'social profit.' We often reference 'social justice' in our requests for contributions and our grant proposals. Yet, there is no 'social profit' or 'social justice' without racial justice. We, in this white-majority field that is committed to "doing good," are not exempt from this work of looking racism and white supremacy in the face and recognizing the ways in which we uphold it (resource: Layla Saad's Me & White Supremacy).
We recognize that we, as a chapter, can not determine whether or not our organization's transformative efforts are achieving success. An authentic shift in our chapter's culture, membership, programming, and practices can only be determined a success by those who have been historically dismissed, diminished, marginalized, and ignored.
We invite you to join the conversation -- and the work.
