The Caribbean panel, convened by the Puerto Rico Community Foundation (FCPR), will be on August 4
Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) will mark its 10th anniversary with the BPM 2021 Global Summit Series, which kicks off August 3, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm EDT, in the U.S. with virtual events continuing in Africa, Brazil, Canada, and the Caribbean.
The Caribbean panel, convened by the Puerto Rico Community Foundation (FCPR), will be on August 4 and will include the organization’s president and chief executive officer, Dr. Nelson I. Colón Tarrats, as the main speaker.
His message will focus on the Institute of Racial Equity for the Americas (REBIA), a philanthropic program that will extend from Puerto Rico to the Caribbean, Latin America, and their corresponding diasporas in the United States. The FCPR defines the institute as a “solid platform to invest in equity, specifically racial equity, including intersectionality between race and gender.”
The series will culminate on August 31 with Reunity, an international Black women funder’s power and wellness summit in collaboration with the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University.
