**Note to ODVN staff- this resource is located in the Activism, Advocacy & Social Change section of the library**
This is a five-disc set of audio of the 2004 conference- The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex. At this conference, over 25 activists and scholars described and discussed the non-profit industrial complex (NPIC); a system of relationships between the state, the owning classes, foundations, and social service/social justice organizations.
The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex answers the following questions:
What is the history of the non-profit model? What drove its development? How does it impact the form and direction of social justice organizing?
How has reliance on foundation funding impacted the course of social justice movements?
How does 501(c)3 non-profit status impact social justice organizations' relationship to the state?
How does non-profit status allow the state to co-opt and control our movements?
Are there ways the non-profit model can be used subversively to support more radical visions for social change?
What are the alternatives for building viable social justice movements? How do we resource our movements outside the non-profit structure?
What models for organizing outside the NGO/non-profit mofel exist outside the U.S. that mayhelp us?
