"As The South Goes" will include a presentation by Nat Williams, Executive Director of the Hill-Snowdon Foundation and Steering Committee Member of Grantmakers for Southern Progress (GSP). Nat will share the findings from GSP's recent survey of close to 200 social justice organizations in the region and interviews/focus groups with 75 Funders.  Some of the major findings include how the language of social justice created barriers to true dialogue about common interests and tested for other language that might allow for more open and still shared understanding.  Results, which make abundantly clear that there is no easy path to common language, which is instructive for all of us doing this kind of work.
