Mollie Hemingway: Facebook Spent as Much Money as U.S. Government to Run the 2020 Election
"You have spent a lot of time looking at this and now reporting it in the book How one billionaire and you know he comes off like a nerd you know and he's testifying Oh but he's much more devious and evil If he asks me With a censorship and his effort here How one billionaire can get away with it Is this is this legal under federal law or maybe some state laws or do we know So that was one of the most interesting things to look into is how was this allowed to happen Because if everyone left and right kind of realizes you can't have tech oligarchs come in and run your elections And he spent as much money as the U.S. government spent on running the elections And I remember talking to these people in Wisconsin because they're usually pretty careful about their election loss I said how did this happen And they said we had no idea it was even legal or possible or that there would be this loophole that would enable it They didn't have laws against it because they never in their wildest dreams imagine that there would be this coordinated effort to take over government election offices And so now they've made it illegal and many states have made it illegal to prevent it from happening in the future but they just didn't know in 2020

The Investigation Into Wisconsin's Election Is More Critical Than Ever
"Of the 25 grants CTCL provided to cities and counties in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia, that were a $1 million or larger, 23 of the 25 grants went to areas that Biden won in 2020. One of the two counties won by Trump, Brown county Wisconsin, received about 1.1 million that's less than 1.2% of the 87 and a half million that CTCL provided to those top 25 recipients. But even in Brown county Wisconsin, where heavily Democrat, Green Bay is located, the funding disparities are glaring, the Wisconsin legislature provided roughly $7 per voter to the city of Green Bay to manage the 2020 elections, rural counties in Wisconsin received approximately $4 per voter. The CTCL funds boosted Democrat voting Green Bay resources to $47 per voter while most rural areas still have the same $4 per voter. And similar funding disparities occurred near Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Flint, Michigan, Dallas, Houston, and other cities that received tens of millions of dollars of CTCL money. I think what's important William to remember here and to point out is what happened in the areas that did not get CTCL funding as I understand it from your study from your research, the numbers stayed pretty consistent, very consistent to what happened in 2016.

'Rigged' Author Mollie Hemingway Describes Changes to Election Law
"Again, the book is called rigged, I want to make sure I keep on plugging it how the media big tech and Democrats seized our elections. And so I want to get into kind of the mail in ballot piece of this. You wrote this piece for newsweek. Recently, and I think it's actually an essay from your book if I'm not mistaken, right? I think so yeah. Yeah, you wrote here about how the change in the election laws themselves had a profound difference in actually the outcome. And so talk a little bit about this because here's one of my complaints about how people talk about the election, which you've done a phenomenal job of doing the opposite, which is, people get so focused on a certain thing like machines or routers. This is comprehensive that there was so many different elements of this that all kind of worked in harmony together. Please talk about the mail in ballot, aspect of this. Well, and I dove in in Wisconsin for mail in ballots because I find that state to be so fascinating. Wisconsin's constitution says that everyone has the right to vote. They also have the right not to vote and that mail in or absentee balloting, I think is how they put it is a privilege. So there are different standards by which they judge in person, election day voting and absentee mail in balloting. And first off, before COVID or anything else, Wisconsin has a problem where they're not keeping their list as clean as they should. So people move all the time like a huge percentage of the population is constantly moving. You might have had yourself like 18 different addresses and you register to vote at one, and then you move to the next, but you're still on the old list. And so states are supposed to clean up their lists with some regularity. And Wisconsin had a quarter of a million voter registrations that they were supposed to remove from their list, but they didn't, they actually lost a court battle about whether to do it or not, but they still didn't. And then into this mix is COVID and the clerks of the two most democratic counties in the state say, we have this special provision in Wisconsin where you can register to vote without showing an ID. So usually you have to show an ID, but if you say you're indefinitely confined, then you don't have to show an ID. So they tell people to do it because of COVID. And I think they get another quarter of a million people registering to vote without requiring them without a requirement for showing ID. Some of them may have shown ID, but they're not

US President Biden Addresses Afghanistan Exit
"123,000 people, including Americans in Afghan allies were evacuated from Afghanistan. Before the completion of the U. S. Troop withdraw from the country. President Biden says the mission was a success despite those left behind when I was running for president Made a commitment to the American people that I would end this war. Today. I'm honored that commitment. However, Wisconsin Republican Congressman Mike Gallagher joins Fox News primetime host Tammy Bruce to talk about why he thinks the president failed billions of dollars worth of U. S military equipment. Left in the hands of fundamentalist terrorists is not a success. Far from a success. This is a fiasco and humiliating failure. The White House says the U. N. Secretary Council is expecting the Taliban to grant access to anyone who wants to leave Afghanistan and that they'll be watching the Taliban's behavior closely so they can be held accountable for potential human rights abuses.
Europe's Mind-Boggling Afghan Crime Wave
"Syrian refugees caused your ten percent of all sexual assault cases. Afghans whose numbers were comparable are responsible for stunning half of all the sexual assault cases in western europe. Welcome to your new neighbours. Everybody and if you don't want all of these afghans that have a higher propensity for sexual assault. You're a bigot. And by the way for media matters. That's watching this right now because got nothing better to do. just go. Look at this article. Cheryl bernard i worked with refugees for decades. Europe's afghan crimewave is mind. Boggling continues by saying it took a while for this pattern to be recognized because until recently western europe media deliberately refrained from identifying salems assailants refugee asylum status or his country of origin only one the correlation became so dramatic that itself was newsworthy to this policy. Change at that point. It became clear that the authorities had known about and for political reasons at deliberately covered large scale incidents of sexual assault by migrants. I could continue with more and more examples here. Washington post afghans. Flown to the united states later flagged for security concerns. The washington post continued by saying afghans cleared to come to the united states are vetted again. Once upon a rival some have been sent back to foreign stagey locations after being flagged for security concerns And just by the by the way we've brought in more afghans to the west than americans to the west invade the world invite the world but again don't notice they don't say what neighborhoods there specifically going to say. Oh they're coming to america. We have so much opportunity. While they're coming to wisconsin. We know that they're coming to philadelphia. Everyone is generous with their refugee resettlement until they come to your living room and rape your daughter. Just ask sweden. Germany asked france. Ask all of western europe that is now clamoring about what the afghans did and this article by cheryl's own. Admission was our right. And i'm going to say this number again. Afghans whose numbers are comparable to syrian refugees. A responsible for a half a stunning half of all sexual assault cases and that is in that is in western europe. Know the truth. Reject the one line stunting of discussion. Just because you're afraid to be calling a bigot racist and there's something else at play her.

Could it derail the progress. The united states has made in combating covert today. President biden was in lacrosse wisconsin in an effort to sell his infrastructure. Plan to the american people and explain what he sees are the real benefits of the plan for working and middle class families all across the country. I'm here in wisconsin to celebrate step forward from our country. Our country talk a little bit about what is going to mean for working families here. Wisconsin and across the nation is going to help us create more good jobs ease the burden to working families and strengthen our economy in the long. I'm going to be out there. Making the case for the american people until this job is done by also touted the fact that the deal was a result of months of negotiations with democrats and republicans that he is delivering on his vision for his presidency and the country that the parties can work together for the benefit of the american people. It is this unity mission that he made clear in his campaign in his inaugural address and nearly every day. Since it's also no mistake that his first time out the country to sell this plan is in wisconsin one of those critical pieces of the blue wall that he reconstructed in order to defeat donald trump and he only did so by a very narrow margin also home to a key house race next year in the battle for control of the house of representatives and a potentially key senate race where republican incumbent ron johnson hasn't yet said definitively if he's running for re election but if he does this will be one of the democrats top targets ron johnson notably a republican senator. Who's not on board with this. Bipartisan deal. This trip is part of a new phase of the strategy to accomplish getting these infrastructure bills signed into law. This new phase. We'll have the president try to rise above the daily political to and fro and fell the benefits of the program to the american people. Get lots of local press coverage while back home in washington. Nancy pelosi and chuck schumer need to figure out a legislative path for both the bipartisan. Deal and the reconciliation bill. That is the american families plan. That's only gonna pass likely with democratic votes how to get both of those through congress today. Nancy pelosi reportedly told her caucus behind closed doors. Don't be definitive about anything. Definitive price tag. You're not willing to go under over. Nothing is written yet and you want to maintain maximum flexibility. And not corner yourself into a position that you may have to remove yourself from when the voting cups. And if you're looking for any signs that mitch mcconnell's challenge to schumer and pelosi to decouple. These bills in congress is taking effect. You're going to be looking for a while. Neither democratic leader yet has come out to do. What joe biden did and really tried to separate these two bills. They remain committed to the dual track and they both seem committed to passing both pieces of this infrastructure. Plan.

"As i mentioned before that's going directly towards general operating support but also for capacity building helping those organizations to support their operational functions the functionalities in order to help the organization run better and more efficiently and being able to ramp up against the challenges that they face. This is all very good news. I think that it shows as i said before philanthropy in wisconsin isn't just a checkbook. It's actually a strong partner. In a lot of the the nonprofit challenges we talk a lot about the power dynamic between funders and nonprofits and that nonprofits are afraid to talk to funders because they have the money and yet funders aren't quite sure about how to address nonprofits because they don't want to be the ones leading the conversation. They want to be able to respond now help. And so who takes the lead and finding more and more that nonprofits are getting a little bolder and funders are getting a little bit more proactive. In reaching out to develop the conversations. I think there will be some good. This is just my personal opinion in the work and the conversation it comes out of the pandemic and all of the closures and the partnerships that develop as a way to support and survive. But as i said only time will tell. But in the meantime it's it's really reassuring to know that there are organizations like wpn helping to develop the other side of the equation and make sure that we are all working towards the same common goals and so with that. I'm going to give this a wrap and call it an episode. It's kind of nice to get behind the microphone again. After a nice long break seen a couple of weeks and enjoy the new year.

"It. The same way right agree. I'm also place where. I seek out the specific expertise in a very narrow way. Okay expert on this go. Seek out that expertise. I gain that knowledge from that expert in that space but when we're talking about community meetings and interactions a collaborative models and opportunities to connect. I have no tolerance right now or paces pam experts in the room so if someone sells out and expert and they know everything there experience help them all of these different things and they're not budging and they're talking at and talking to people. I have very little patience. For those types of experts and in some cases it can be dealbreakers. Because i was telling someone. I think maybe maybe even do want those interview process talk about my lifetime that i feel like i live a happy light. I will feel like. I have acquired a level of of dizziness in my life. That i'm laying on my guest. David i'm laying on my bed. And i actually. I don't know where. Wow i didn't know that i learned something today. I learned. That's what i'm going for right now.

Look and i applaud you. I think that's fantastic. I just realized we're painting running out of time here so i wanna be. Respectful has kind of gone with our days. And you can fix yourself some real hot chocolate. How it's going to be a little nicer today. But still but i appreciate you taking the time to sit down with me and i really feel exactly what you were just talking about about the need to learn from one another and to expand ourselves. I also have a stack of unread books burner. That will ever get to the bottom of thank you. Thank you for joining. Thank you so much price. So the organization that tony overseas the wisconsin philanthropy network is a professional membership association for grant makers all over wisconsin. If you are a community foundation a private foundation an individual giver corporate healthcare higher education foundations. This is an organization that helps to make sure that that giving is as effective and meaningful as possible or provides networking opportunities skills building as well as customized research services and one of the research projects that wpn puts out regularly as a biannual report all wisconsin gifts which looks deeply into the philanthropic trends throughout wisconsin and compares that national trends to see just exactly where the money's going where the focus is are where the shifts are happening and it's pretty fascinating dive into just how philanthropy works was kansin. It becomes evident that it's not simply a checkbook. It is in fact an ear to the ground. That's really listening and paying attention and trying to preempt any challenges in the future and to see where the twists and turns of society are likely to take us and how they might be able to help support in the future. I find it kind of interesting giving trends in. America have been on the rise for years and according to wisconsin gives twenty twenty between two thousand eighteen and two thousand nineteen. There was a four point two percent increase just in that year alone resulting in almost four hundred and fifty billion dollars in charitable giving. And that's kind of a maze. Twenty one billion of that is from a different corporations. As they wrote the report they conducted a survey of all of their members and found that almost sixty five percent of those who responded are specifically increasing grants and gifts for disaster philanthropy due to covid nineteen. that's sixty five percent of the funders in wisconsin. That are pivoting specifically to match the challenges of the pandemic and the resulting nonprofit closures and draw down of services at that's resulted in what i think is most interesting and we talked a little bit about it in our interview. The difference between programming and operational support funders don't necessarily have a long standing history of funding operational support of proceeding almost forty percent increasing the grants to that overall operations funding. That's significant that. Means those organizations are going to be able to keep their lights on keep their staff up and running and be able to deliver the services. What i think is is particularly interesting. Given a lot of the events of twenty twenty that were not covid. Nineteen related sixty percent of the survey respondents are specifically focusing their funding to address racial justice issues. That's pretty significant. There's always been a presence of that in philanthropy but to see that degree of a shift is is very impressive. Could be really interesting to see what that results in how that plays out in the years to come when we talk about all of its covert nineteen funding. The majority of that is going directly for food security and making sure that people have food on the table as a result of an employment issues and being just unable to get out and live their lives. And that's a pretty impressive response as we move forward in industrial be interesting to see how this all plays out in twenty twenty one twenty twenty two to get that report but to see kind of where some of this shift ends up and how much a sustained in the years to come in and where the trends take us and as part of their grant maker survey they found that there were significant increases in the giving

"Looking for when i'm engaging with people also and so you mentioned that you are passionate and i'm thinking that people can be passionate about a lot of different things and so keeping the last six seven months in mind and kind of how things are working with not working in this virtual world and what do you feel the most passionate about right now on a personal or professional level. I give you a couple of things i think. I'm very passionate right now about the mental health of myself and my mental wellness about myself and the community at large. I think that that is an important component of where we are. You're talking about isolation or you're talking about things are happening that are out of your control that are relative to call maybe some in food insecurity for people maybe a loss of job those kinds of things some worried about all of that inside the space of mental health and wellness. That people are in howard breathing. Who were engaging with our be minimizing triggers in our line goal human and psychological. That are out there. And how we're thinking about that and then you know. I won't be remiss drives if i didn't say that the the journey that we've been on lately as relates to racial and social injustice is something that i'm becoming more passionate about. We can have that conversation about system we can have that conversation about people's attitude and where they are and how you can ultimately change things and the crucial conversation that we need to have. I'm to lead that charge then. Wpn but i think for the first time in my life. I am recognizing my own leadership journey as late to racial equity and social equity within our communities and i am actually having more hard shoot conversations within my own self about where i am in the space. What privileges have i enjoyed. What things have i done over the course of my lifetime that hap- to the system that are affecting our community and then thinking about all of that in the context of what it's like to run an organization life yet where we do have the percy challenges that philanthropy overall i was. Actually you brought that up. And that was my immediate. I thought is what is it like. As a black man. Leading an organization with a constituency that is predominantly white. Yeah so it's an interesting dynamic. Because a lot of things have happened in all of those copy conversations that i've had over the course of my. I'm coming up on my i can't believe it i'll come third year third year anniversary. Wpn which is crazy. Adulation congratulates you very much. Because time is just blown by. But i spent two years in this organization just trying to build trust trying to get out of people's mindset west. Tony gonna take you know. Where's this person's going to take organization when i interviewed for this position and i talked to the selection committee about this job. I didn't talk about being a black man. What i talked about was someone who's born in many different arenas someone who has a diverse network of people that i work with and rely on for a number of conversations on key issues. Someone who understands nonprofits someone who wants to understand. Better philanthropy and help polanski. Tell a better story about the work. They're doing i didn't i didn't show up as a black man job. I i did well. And that's that is the ideal you know. That's how you should have approached by but it was interesting because i one of the very person meetings i went to. Wpn as elite up wpn meaning probably twenty five thirty people. All great people care about community in the next in the trenches getting their hands. Dirty sorenson works looking at nonprofit organisation. Doing all the right things. But i walked into that room and i was the only african american that room and that was like that was the moment for me. Wow you know so you know. I know that there are people of color that are working in the sector working within the space. But there was a time where i can listen to you very easily. I think there's been more expansion that has happened over the three year periods. And i've been here and that's not gonna need to register. Wpn that ship organizations really changing how they look at populated their organization. How look at their hiring practices and our diversity efforts and what they're doing so great strides. The may but a lot of work still needs to be done but to be honest with you right. I'm very sensitive about being an african american man in this space and this work and part of the part of that i've been doing is feeling like we're gonna lead these efforts and we've got equity we. We had a strategic planning process that we engaged in a couple of years ago for three to five year plan and equity is right in one of the key. Strategic components are oriented face. so there's been equity. There's been i but it's been kind of small letter equity kind of just things that you have seen over the last thirty year and there has been a reputation for me leading an organization being a man of color doing this work and thinking about how programming how conversations and how working get done and personally be obsessed with. It's gotta be told. You can't mess this up and i've used workable language by trump so you can't you can't mess this up and my journey over the course of this past year with all of my cold reflection and a lot of sitting by myself and thinking about what to do and what. I want my own personal legacy look for myself my family my community and the work that we're doing tony. You have to get out of the space of perfection. You have to look at community based research principles and evaluation principal understand that the state can be made. Mistakes will be made. Go back to what you've been doing your entire professional career which is tried to testing and doing new things and if they mess up learn from your mistakes and go forward and that's really been a very profound thing for me as i've been going on my own leadership journey. Which is you know tony. You're gonna have to give yourself permission to make mistakes. And that's okay and so i'm not there yet. It's always gonna be adjourning you know always gonna be in but's it's already that i thought on that journey right now and i can't believe that you know thirty years or professional career in the walkie. I thought i was interesting brian. I gave him the same thing. I thought it was supposed to be easier by now. I thought my time in my career and my age. I was gonna know everything was going to be pretty easy. And i'm surprised incurs an exciting about the fact that i'm still learning and i was still willing to take my and that the the professional trajectory and everything that done in my lifetime it's been very lumpy be ride and i'm still audit and i'm cool with that makes it exciting though you know if you've got to settle than to if you just got too comfortable. Where's your word is your motivation. Go right ryan the fact that at our stage in life we have this passion to learn his passion to of just and see what's going on around us and find our place. I think that's in our favor. Do are a lot of people out there. that don't necessarily see it.

"Doing i think. The biggest challenge with coal. Actually i will call the challenge. Because i don't think i i you know. We're challenged by virtue of kobe. But i think philanthropy has done some really great thing relative to the pandemic especially on the onset of the pandemic so there were a number of familiar with the coats on that was developed here in milwaukee that was led by the greater milwaukee foundation and other family private family foundations well corporate entities that a source bat that particular you know may not get the number on percent right but i think that initial funding source was someone neighbor. To of three million dollars was was raised like within the first week. So what you saw. We're very similar efforts in other markets around the state so be madison. Green bay fox cities other rural spaces lead mostly in part by community foundations throughout the state or the united way organizations where really lead the charge in sourcing that work so from a financial perspective from a resource perspective. There wasn't abusing of dollars that came in to support basic needs so housing food insecurity employment efforts that were released and becomes the result of coding. But i think just as important. And probably i don't know you know acting more than for was philanthropy across the board within wisconsin Decided to in working with their grant. Tease relaxed many of the restrictions around restricted fund and said those nonprofit organizations that you can utilize dollars we may have provided you were direct program and apply that to your basic operations to spain employees within your organization. That was a game changer. I mean you had organizations that had rigorous eighteen months fund development processes in granting that they were doing with their partners who organized their work within their organization reorganize how structured and got board approval and turned eighteen month processes. it's a four week processes in some cases mets impressive. Yeah it's significant. I wanna i wanna take a moment because it occurs to me will probably have a few people listening who don't necessarily quite understand the difference between programmatic funding and general operational funding. There are two different pools or primary approaches. Funders can assist and historically were talking about supporting specific programs that tends to be very restricted. In how the money is allowed to be spelled as the funders. Get a say in that. But what we're talking about is that they kind of those restrictions and said you can use this money to pay your bills to pay the rent to pay the salaries tra- that's exactly right. It's the difference between. I remember when i was at united neighbor citizen walkie. We had a restricted jobs program. Now we worked on and capital aren restrictions capital letters restrictions across the board. And then things like we're bringing in youth to bring them in employment to give them employment opportunities by the grant that you were see can't allow you to provide lunch with those young people and they come in for their training you can't certain things and then the audit included asking us how we were utilizing the windex. He bought to clean up the tables that we were working. What i'll while i would say that. The membership of wisconsin philanthropy network is that there are restriction some funds that are out there from a programming perspective and there was a call or more trust based approaches and The spaces the philanthropy. Ups is working with the whitman out of california what they have developed a model for what is called recipes philanthropy and that is really not only four wisconsin philanthropic organizations to relax those restrictions. But how do you help your your grand tease. Psychologically work through this work. How do you develop a mechanism for the ability for the nonprofit organization to be completely candid and transparent about the challenges venture not proper spacing to be blunt as nonprofit organization. They are not predisposed to talk about the bad things that are happening in their organization. They're predisposed to talk about results to talk about out com talk about impact the great things that they're doing so it's very difficult for them In many cases to feel comfortable enough with their funders to say here's a problem. We're the real challenge that we're going through and so the length of us really working hard at the dolphins mechanism that atmosphere where grand tease. You'll coupable enough to engage in conversations with funders. Were they could talk about the real challenges that they're facing it that and then communicating that so that was another piece of psychology was the land that worked very hard the onset of colon to communicate to their grant teas that we're going to change around our focus at how we're doing things as a response to covid nineteen. What was happening. What is happening in that state. That's really impressive. As kind of thinking about the culture of philanthropy and how that affects people from both sides of the conversation. I think that's you've worked in a broad variety of different careers different tasks that were before you all of that. What do you think you really really. Well what do you do this. Wow well first of all. Thanks for asking that question. I appreciate the opportunity to think on that. So you know you're always and then mindset When you're in a job interview you're asked. What are your weaknesses and your strengths. And we designed. I worked hard. I think too much and make it into something positive. And then you are asked about your shrinks looking for a job. You don't always think about those guys. The exact glen i appreciate. You asked me that question. What does my screen. I think i think my strength is my authenticity. I think my strength is The fact that. I what you see. I mean literally truly what you see what she get that. I'm really trying to while. I'm always going to champion work. The job the needs of an organization what needs to happen for an organization that these successful. I am still going to be. I'm going to be into the list. So i'm going to be transparent and i'm going to be authentic with my work. I think that i take that very seriously to be authentic person to be a truth teller and it's most appropriate forms not to be not throw cold water on things or shut people down but the truth set you free.

"Years now and i was ready to run an organization because i have been running an organization prior to coming on. Wgn but being ready to do a good job. I question that in some respects that i was ready to do a good job in this role. Probably right at the moment. That i took this position because i had to learn from a number of mistakes and also give myself time to celebrate the successes i had over the course of by professional career routes 'cause there were a lot of success is there are a lot of great things that are but there are distinct moments in my congressional career whereas like you made a mistake that day and this what you learn from that situation and that talk i mean. There's there's always going to be a learning curve you know. You can't be expected to walk in first day and immediately changed the world right You gotta understand the lay of the land. And when you're going to program supervision to all of a sudden working with philanthropies there's a whole different side of the coin bear you're interacting west to understand the needs of that community which is very different than being on the receiving end of funding. You know we're all doing the same work right. Philanthropy is helping the source all those non profit organizations that are out in our community doing great great work helping the take up the scale. Great things that are happening or helping to continue to support things. That are proven. It's ally but it is very different. I mean the difference between nonprofit organizations how the world relative to scarcity of resources and how that greed an atmosphere of competition it breeds an atmosphere. Where collaboration is not the first thing that people are thinking about whereas in philanthropy. But when i would sit around the table with organizations that. I've worked with when i was doing nonprofit collaboration. There was always tense. I mean there was. it was inherent. It was inherent tension. It might have been. Somebody did something to somebody. And somebody's organization somebody that's up to somebody organization three years earlier and they're still hard feelings or people are are checking swing. Relative to munching forward for our need to really collaborate in an offensive way because history philanthropy operates very differently around the table in philanthropy. Everybody's comfortable in their own skin rockwell automation as an example isn't going to be worried about competition from the brewers community foundation because they're both sourcing work been acquired their resources to be able to do their work in very different ways to really breathes opportunity. School our collaboration on a very different level because all that clutter that comes in from the competition. Aspect isn't there. It's completely minimized in that the clutter as you call it. It strikes me that there is this a level of comfort. That's very different. From being a nonprofit looking to receive funds versus being effectively profit has funds and providing it so the clutter. Did you feel like that's a result of competition own. Yeah i do. Yeah that clutter is so there's a number of things not just the competition aspect. A lot of it is alignment of mission and small staff. The absence in many respects of key bench thought leaders inside of nonprofit organizations because the majority and rightfully so People that are working in nonprofit organizations. I really frontline staff. They're executing programming and outreach and work very specific ways so does not a lot of time to think strategically or big picture or around. Who who you could partner with to move forward your own mission and the work that you're doing there is the whole notion around. There's only certain amount of dollars or talent or people that can do the work or the resources needed to be able to do that work so there's always some challenges for people in organizations because this is the number of different dynamics that are out there that nonprofit organizations are working within the sector. It makes it a little bit tougher to come together and collaborate and really authentic ways. When i was at harley davidson are charitable contributions committee would have these married. Now keep in mind. This is a charitable contributions committee that comprised of professionals in manufacturing and. So you've got engineers you've got financial analysts you've got lawyers. You've got some marketing people. You've got manufacturing leaders that are sitting around the table and talking about sourcing projects within the community and they're looking at it a lean manufacturing perspective and so built down and if they see three proposals from three to nonprofit organizations and they're all doing the same work and they're all competing then the next mindset is won't we figure out how to source them all or can they collaborate. Can't they come together and come up with the program. And i would often tell the people in those rooms. Yes we get asked to collaborate. We can bring the leaders of those three organizations to collaborate and tell them we're going to find you and certain kind of way we're going to fund you to do this work that you were all doing and they're gonna now their head and they're gonna agree and they're gonna walk out the door and two months later they're gonna come back with a proposal that is going to meet our requirements but the time for the walking out the door to presenting that proposal to us two months later there will be a bloodbath because these are competitors these are organizations. That aren't necessarily waking up to do this collaborative work and so what were effectively doing forced marriage. We're basically telling the community that we're forcing come together for collaboration when we all know that collaboration is really greeted in what we're doing right now. Brice which is we're connecting on a level then is not started or sparked by. Oh there's money over there let's go pursue it started by relational interpersonal opportunities to come together and then ideas flow. And then you say wow. You're doing this. i'm doing that. But we do this. Let's collaborate and a proposal when as the scarcity issue does not allow that freedom or that time to be able to do that type of collaboration. What going be doing that. Yeah that's that's very cool to hear. I was talking to another in another episode. I was talking with someone that as part of this whole study. that h. b. is doing for kind of the effect of covid nineteen. What we found. Is that in terms of organizational collaboration. Southeastern wisconsin is had shoulders above the rest of the state as you were saying. It's largely been sort of philanthropy driven in our community for a while. It's just kind of interesting that you touch on that and kind of how philanthropists are effectively looking to sort of make sure that efforts are being duplicated and that at least here in milwaukee or or the general area that seems to be working better than another communities at any rate around the state. Yeah and so. I'm curious though in terms of the kind of talk about covert nineteen there for a little bit from your perspective and and kind of engaging with philanthropists. I imagined pretty heavily. Especially in the last six seven months. What's going on in the world of philanthropy related to covid nineteen and kind of the challenges. That nonprofits are facing right. The over arching thing. That i would say is that wisconsin s philanthropy relates to kobe. We're very consistent with what is happening nationally. Which which is you look at the best practices that are happening. Wisconsin is developed some pretty good best practices within

"Philanthropy. I think the way that most people get into philanthropy. They kind of dropped in based on their life experience. You know professional experiences you know kinda the ban with all that extent other often leads you in some respects to workings and some level in philanthropy. But i'm originally from chicago. Lived there for the first. You know technically the first twenty one years of my life. So i originally came to milwaukee to attend then cardinal stritch college which is now cardinal stritch university so. I came up to play basketball. What continue my high school career. It's my college career. And in that moment of my life. I wanted to leave the west side of chicago. There was more recuperation gang activity it was becoming a little bit more dangerous for someone who was in their late teens and i was also begin the process of broadening my own horizon so i jumped at the opportunity to in college an hour and a half away from chicago in my own life. Experience that hour and a half of could've been hundred miles. I'd never really been out of chicago than a couple of very quick family vacation. So i literally thought. Wisconsin was a world away. My dream at the time was to work in radio. Possibly be on air. Talent and radio ended up going down to track internships and those kinds of things working more sales more promotions and that went to an opportunity with the milwaukee bucks the lowest lowest ron of iran. That was literally go within the organization. Doing the number of activities and work where i often said to myself So this is pro sports Right just you gotta start somewhere. You gotta start somewhere right. You gotta start somewhere so within my experience box went from ten gopher to sales and marketing season ticket sales program sales up my entire time with the bucks i was on your systems coordinator for gays i was in charge of whenever you walk into the arena for a game. I was responsible for what you hear playing music in doing that. Kind of thing. Picking it progress music but Working i was dealing with. The box was particular program for students who achieved in classrooms through milwaukee public schools and walk shop schools west tie. We were working on developing a tim. A ticketing program for students who had sheep and bright gave me the opportunity to the school. So i would go on all these different schools all of these built environments around schooling and you walk into schools in certain neighborhoods at certain times and certain moments and you realize there is a. There's a gap between school. School environment to environment disciplined might look like at one school versus another. How middle schools look different than highschool some respect and then in some respects. Didn't it all so that began by interest. Because this this was the moment that i was getting my car on a regular basis going out and going into milwaukee and visiting and seeing neighborhoods and so i got a certain amount of energy in doing that and right same time this was around. Nineteen ninety-three the nba. That's basketball association. Was asking all team to have a dedicated community relations department within their organization it so like most. Nba teams the bucks. Were doing a lot of things in the community. The aforementioned program. I was talking about their work with matt fun. Working with youth groups those kind of things partnerships with organizations like the boys and girls clubs. Ymca but it wasn't centralized in the organization and so when they were looking to have someone kind of centralized operation up community relationship. I raised my hand and said you know the school doing stuff in the community already. I would love the opportunity to grow my career by leading our media relations efforts and that led me to for the next seven years as the community relations director of the box. So i was just the doping programs engaging players engaging coaches engaging staff in various partnership spirits activities around community relations so that was my first opportunity to review. Proposals from the community gets no community members. Get to know the people within the community organizations that are doing good work who should be scaled up so that was like my first entry way into that work so after about seven years of doing that i decided to make a hugely going from the corporate sector of the nonprofit sector because i wanted to see what life was like on the other side and i took a voice girls clubs greater milwaukee if they're direct programs throughout the city of milwaukee bad. I am telling you bryce and you're gonna appreciate that. I had done sales and marketing. I had done season ticket sales. I had done Pitches to sponsors to align them community programs that we were working on but going into work with the boys and girls clubs the single hardest sales job. I've ever ridden up sales the belief of sales. You know when you go. From a corporate environment to nonprofit world people automatically assume i remember these conversations with the thai people would say oh my goodness you're going to work with the kids that's wonderful and you're going to do all these great days. You're going to buildings relationships. You're gonna impact young people as you're going up and you go in there and i wouldn't have very easily and didn't have a full grasp Impact revenue generation for a non profit organization to sustain all the good work that people know that now profit organization is doing and quite honestly. I don't even think mentally i was ready for. It was a major culture shock for me and it also grounded me a little bit learning how to be humble learning how to understand that there are people in the room who know more about the community than you do even though you worked in that space going padding pro sports behind each adding pro sports five you was a significant culture shock and so i learned a lot in that space went from that to work a small public relations and marketing burn biggest. Worked i did was what the wisconsin tobacco control born so i was working tobacco cessation efforts and secondhand smoke mitigates to work in communities of color throughout the state of wisconsin. I need to get a feel for the state. When from there to harley davidson managed and lead their community relations for about six years worked on two major motorcycle anniversary hundred bent relationships with us. Just be association. Disabled american veterans and then work dot community relations efforts in the areas where we at corporate facility. I learn more about trending and benchmarking organizations so that was a great opportunity and then from there. I went to united neighbor. To the milwaukee where i was the executive director so again for and for profit back to the nonprofit sector with with uncommon for about eight years managing that organization a membership organization. So they gave me an opportunity to go to figure out how to serve the work with numbers. And then right to where i got dropped in working in philanthropy. That's quite a path. It's always fascinating to me the path that people take through life where you started where you end up almost never the same place in the same seat belt or anything interesting because you know when you look back on and you think about you know what i was like when i was younger. How you think your career is gonna go. You think oh. I'm going to graduate college. And i'm gonna go work someplace now to put on a suit and i'm going to come up with this great idea. And i'm gonna have the zenith career. Take the executive position the executive suite that i rightfully are and what you don't realize what my own professional trajectory taught me was. It takes time. It takes effort. It takes success most important it takes state and it takes learning from those states to develop the foundation that you could have that you are able to run able to lead able to influence and do those things that you wanna do.

"Continue quarantining perfectly healthy people in low risk areas but decision making book moving forward needs to be grounded in common sense at real data. Now the only agenda if decision making needs to return to the public and people have to decide for themselves what they do and do not want to do it. Had we done that from the beginning? Which is how we have handled every other viral outbreak in the last century in this country we would not have been in this mess. There would have been an economic downturn because some people wouldn't have been comfortable going to this Saturday the other thing and many businesses like these sports leagues would have shut down on their own without government order but that would have been at least Americans making decisions for themselves rather than this micromanagement of our lives that you heard the last spot break Danell. Donald one of the zoo's Max commercials and he talked about how in many communities. They're using these orders. As an excuse to clamp down on Christian churches don't ever forget that liberals are opportunistic. Never let a good crisis go to waste while the media will continue to frame. This is a health question. You will see overreach in all of these areas that have nothing to do with health as they use this situation. As an excuse to do a zillion things that they otherwise would have loved to do like not letting people go to church. Remember their priorities. The abortion clinics were exempted. They can stay. Open the still slice it up the babies across the state as well in southeastern Wisconsin with clinics still exist but many other businesses cannot operate. They will never shut out the stuff that they most care about. Just as they will never take away the paychecks from their own people. They'll shut down the schools but they won't take away the teachers paycheck's even as I mentioned earlier.
