ALF National Presents: Money as Medicine - A Dialogue with Edgar Villanueva

Date: November 16, 2020Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

ALF National Presents: Money as Medicine – A Dialogue with Edgar Villanueva

November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PST

 

 

Event Description:
In his 2018 book Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance, Edgar Villanueva draws from Native traditions to prescribe the medicine for restoring balance and healing our divides. Edgar calls on us to use our money as medicine, replacing the “divide, control, exploit” paradigm with “connect, relate, belong.”  We invite Senior Fellows to engage in dialogue with Edgar on these concepts, and explore how we as Senior Fellows practice our ALF values when it comes to investment and philanthropy.

This is a virtual event. Please register below.
