The nation’s current climate can make it feel like each day brings more bad news – dangerous new ecological warning signs, acts from Washington that threaten communities of color, and continued erosion of our democratic processes and institutions. The West Coast has shown leadership – philanthropic, moral, and political – in stepping up to fight back against these troubling trends. It’s time to amplify this work by thinking bigger and moving upstream. Yet one of the most effective opportunities to do so is the last place many think to partner: the American South.

Together, we can build relationships of solidarity whose impact will ripple across the country – and the globe. Join The Solutions Project, Grantmakers for Southern Progress (GSP), the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP), and Northern California Grantmakers to gain powerful insights and practical tools from As the South Grows, an initiative derived from over 100 interviews and focus groups with community leaders and funders working across the region. It’s an event you don’t want to miss.

The conversation will take place from 3:00-5:00 pm at the James Irvine Foundation's San Francisco office followed by an informal happy hour nearby till 6:30pm.
