During times of great change, nonprofit organizations are faced with tremendous challenges and opportunities. The way that organizations rise to meet them depends on your staff, volunteers and board member’s ability to be flexible and adapt to new realities.

Virtual: Beyond Checkbox Diversity Certificate — Center for Nonprofit Management - SoCal

We have a few seats left in our upcoming virtual certificate program starting this Thursday: Beyond Checkbox Diversity - Disrupting systemic racism and implicit bias within organizations.

This program meets on Thursday June 11, June 18th and June 25th from 1:30pm to 4:30pm and is taught by the excellent Nancy Moricette, Founder and Lead Consultant at Áse Power Consult.

In 2020 all good leaders must create an authentically diverse organization – staff, board, volunteers, vendors, donors, etc. To evolve into an organization that embraces an inclusive practice requires courageous leaders committed to cultivating equitable connections and opportunities waiting for their organizations.

Healthy LA City Take Action Toolkit 6/6/2020

The HealthyLA Coalition has mobilized thousands of people across LA City and LA County to take vital action via calls, emails, and social media resulting in the adoption of necessary and common sense measures to protect tenants, workers, and unhoused people during this COVID-19 crisis.

We stand in solidarity with the The HealthyLA Coalition and People’s Budget LA coalition in applying pressure to the Los Angeles City Council to adopt a city budget that is truly reflective of the needs of its residents.

The LA City Budget and Finance Committee is meeting TODAY, JUNE 08 at 2:00pm, to discuss the Mayor’s budget. Use this great toolkit to call/email elected officials, post a public comment and spread the word on social media: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sReHjBiC5aSDebkUQBpJ85DaeLHxRSs7H_K_78oBMUI/preview?pru=AAABcrjScsg*kdFPWkO1ufMwJYQCS_xy-g

06/05/2020

The team at CNM stands with the Black Lives Matter movement and our nonprofit colleagues across the country who are working for justice and equality. We acknowledge and share deep feelings of pain and outrage and condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. George Floyd’s death - as well as Ahmaud Arbery's, Breonna Taylor's, and so many local residents over the decades - serves as a painful reminder that we as a sector must become an unstoppable force helping strengthen the anti-racist movement.

The nonprofit sector has an important and unique role to play in furthering the necessary changes that must come next. We need to make the fight against racism and for justice a part of every nonprofit's mission. As President Obama called out earlier this week, it is vital that we continue to make our voices heard, hold those in power accountable, and use the power of our vote to elect leaders who will fight racism and work to reform racist systems.

We can’t prevent or foresee every crisis, but how we communicate and adapt during times of uncertainty makes all the difference.

A transformational crisis is just a tweet, lawsuit, protest, YouTube video, safety event or natural disaster away for any organization. And amid this global pandemic – crises don’t take a number; it’s a matter of when, not if. Why do some organizations come out of a crisis with limited backlash while others suffer significant damage to their brand, reputation and long-term viability? It comes down to how well an organized prepares and adapts. And amid the dynamic COVID-19 crisis, how can an organization effectively communicate its mission and keep volunteers, donors and other stakeholders engaged?

We can’t prevent or foresee every crisis, but how we communicate and adapt during times of uncertainty makes all the difference.

When we rebuilt our upcoming #501conference “Facing Crisis Together - Building an Inclusive Path Forward” we knew it was essential that we address the challenges that emerged quickly for nonprofit leaders dealing with the impact of the pandemic and the glaring racial inequities that were exacerbated by the medical and economic crisis. The events of this past week provide more painful reminders that it is more important than ever that nonprofit leaders get results. Let’s come together to share ideas, and start to make plans for how we’ll move forward together to drive change that is long overdue. We hope you’ll join us: https://www.cnmsocal.org/501conference

Virtual Seminar: Scenario Planning
Thursday, May 21 from 9:30am-12:30pm

COVID-19 and the unknown future means our staff and leaders must be increasingly flexible and ready to respond to the changing environment.

Scenario planning provides a framework to explore and anticipate the parameters of a variety of factors, over time and circumstance. The use of such a framework helps us to imagine multiple future possibilities and develop potential strategies to be successful in each. Scenario planning looks at the potential financial situations as well as providing effective programs to a changing client base.

In Mesoamerican cultures the use of masks dates from 3000 years ago. Murals and Codices have left evidence that masks were used by priests to summon the power of deities and as funerary masks for dignitaries. After the Spanish conquest masks were used to catechize the native population through dramatic representations of Christian stories. Nowadays masks are used in communal ceremonial dances, particularly for the celebration of patron saint day, Carnival and Christmas. These traditional Mexican masks are usually made by a mask maker and rarely by the dancers. When Mexico opened up to foreign tourists in the 1950's art collectors began ordering masks that were especially made for them which started the decoration masks making. Originally based on traditional masks, designs soon evolved thanks to the buyers' feedback and the crafters creativity. Decorative Mexican masks can be found in all sizes and qualities, there is some worth to be a collector's item while others are sold as souvenirs in tourists' destinations.
