On: On September 14, 2021, Californians voted on whether to recall Governor Gavin Newsom. The results of this special, off-cycle election will have an enormous impact in shaping the political landscape in California and nationally for years to come. Assessing the policy and funding implications after the recall election will be essential as we continue to build compelling narratives and successful strategies for equitably supporting families, workers and communities into 2022 and beyond.  

Please mark your calendars for this free, post-election briefing for funders. Join the California Donor Table and Philanthropy California for this interactive session on:  

  • The recall electorate (who voted and why); 
  • Understand how the recall election results could impact efforts to advance racial equity efforts across California and nationally; and   
  • Unpack recall election results and explore collaboration and funding opportunities for the philanthropic sector ahead of 2022 midterm elections and beyond.
