The CCF Rewind
We’re really excited about this week’s CCF Hub pieces because they are both really fun (and educational) reads. We have two essays that broke format in new and creative ways. There’s a super honest and real series of “confessionals” from Black women nonprofit professionals, and we also have a multimedia post that is a collaboration with teens.

April is so awesome and she is back with another essay, this time with a piece that grabs sound bytes from her friends and colleagues giving us the honest truth and giving us wisdom about their experiences navigating this sector as Black women.
April’s essay is personal, it’s biting, and it shows that the stories we hear about the way Black women are policed in this sector (and in society) aren’t just isolated instances, but rather a poison that is pervasive and common. After reading this essay, we must all look within ourselves to find the ways in which we manifest and abide by the things April and her colleagues bring up.
By Allison Hood and Sophie James
We love getting content from young people because — to sound a little corny about it — they are the future of this sector, and they will be the ones who will change it for the better.
To pull together her multimedia essay, Allison consulted with and collaborated with her teen staff members and teen board member at VOX ATL, an organization that is truly teen-led. Together, the group created a piece that details some dos and don’ts of engaging teens in fundraising, gives practical suggestions, and also presents the information in both the written form and in cool infographic videos.
