Interview with Ibrahim Abdul-Matin

The 501c3 Ghetto :: An quick interview with Ibrahim Abdul-Matin.

Here at the Advocacy Development II event Mr. Abdul-Matin asked an interesting question. I interviewed him to find out more.

“Is the 501c3 status given to non-profits by the IRS inherently anti-progressive or anti-social justice?” He proposes that the 5013c is a way to make organizing or advocacy a field. It’s goal was to make people less likely to take risks because it’s tied to people’s livelihoods.

Listen to the rest of our conversation and a few suggestions for alternatives for community groups besides the 5013c.
