This year at the Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) National Conference, Curtis Ogden asked a big question:
I want to pick up on what Rev. Wilson was evoking a little while ago in terms of the prophetic imagination. In our organization as we do collaborative capacity building we talk about love and love as a force for social transformation. Here in a room of philanthropists – lovers on mankind – my question to the panel and to others is, how do you take love seriously as a force for social transformation? What’s love got to do with it?
This question spurred a Huffington Post article by Kathleen P. Enright, President and CEO of GEO, on the role of love in philanthropy.
Here is a short and inspiring video from the GEO conference where Rev. Starsky Wilson answers Curtis’s question and mentions his entire organization completing IISC’s course, Facilitative Leadership for Social Change.
