A trillion-dollar industry, the US non-profit sector is one of the world's largest economies. From art museums and university hospitals to think tanks and church charities, over 1.5 million organizations of staggering diversity share the tax-exempt 501(c)(3) designation, if little else. Many social justice organizations have joined this world, often blunting political goals to satisfy government and foundation mandates. But even as funding shrinks, many activists often find it difficult to imagine movement-building outside the non-profit model. The Revolution Will Not Be Funded gathers essays by radical activists, educators, and non-profit staff from around the globe who critically rethink the long-term consequences of what they call the "non-profit industrial complex." Drawing on their own experiences, the contributors track the history of non-profits and provide strategies to transform and work outside them. Urgent and visionary, The Revolution Will Not Be Funded presents a biting critique of the quietly devastating role the non-profit industrial complex plays in managing dissent. Contributors. Christine E. Ahn, Robert L. Allen, Alisa Bierria, Nicole Burrowes, Communities Against Rape and Abuse (CARA), William Cordery, Morgan Cousins, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Stephanie Guilloud, Adjoa Florncia Jones de Almeida, Tiffany Lethabo King, Paul Kivel, Soniya Munshi, Ewuare Osayande, Amara H. Prez, Project South: Institute for the Elimination of Poverty and Genocide, Dylan Rodrguez, Paula X.

"A stinging indictment of what the authors call the 'non-profit industrial complex.'" -- Elisabeth Prgl * Signs * "Fiery" * Utne Reader * "A crucial intervention into mainstream ways of thinking about political organization and social change." -- Ryne Clos * Spectrum Culture * "Powerfully demonstrate[s] what we too often forget: our attempts at securing safety for ourselves and our communities are subject to much more powerful attempts by the state and society to make itself safeincluding to make itself safe from us and our most radical, challenging, revolutionary, feminist ideas." -- Ruthann Robson * Women's Studies Quarterly * "Although The Revolution Will Not Be Funded presents no easy answers for those of us struggling both to make a living and to create social change, it exhorts us to put the consideration of our movements' missions, and the way we fulfill them, before considerations of organizational and job securityand to regularly revisit within our organizations the question of whether the form and the content of our work are essentially compatible." -- Christy Thornton * NACLA Report on the Americas *
