As funders, we are watchful for moveable moments on the issues dearest to us. The explosion of racial injustice back into the public consciousness interconnecting Oakland, New York, Ferguson and many point between has re-energized conversations about race, equity and institutional change.
Government has been both an accelerator and, in profound ways, an obstacle to the transformation that philanthropy seeks in advancing racial equity in the institutions that connects us all from education to health, jobs, housing and justice.
Today, funders have an opportunity to engage with government partners, especially at the local and regional level to resource equity and inclusion and promote greater accountability.
Join this conversation with active leaders in bridging government and philanthropic efforts toward partnership for change. The upcoming program Advancing Racial Equity and Transforming Government will discuss the leveraging role that government can play in achieving racial equities in cities and regions who are interested in connecting with other place-based funders.
