The mishandling of COVID-19 breakouts among incarcerated individuals, lack of reentry programs, unethical prison labor practices, and continued abuse within the prison structure demonstrates a broken system. Philanthropy has historically shied away from focusing on incarceration and abolition because of their political divisiveness, leaving incarcerated individuals and their families to suffer disproportionately.
All of our futures depend on supporting young people now —especially Black, Indigenous, and People of Color youth who have experienced the most severe impacts of the pandemic. Times call for philanthropy to act together and share power with Bay Area youth to counter the educational, social, and emotional losses from more than a year without in-person learning at public schools.

Rather than consider an equitable recovery, which implies a return to what once was, let us consider an equitable re-imagination, disruption, and restructure of what is possible to build a collective better future. Dr. Manuel Pastor will share why and how this can be done with a community-centered approach and argues why movement-building needs to be at the core of our focus. Join us for what promises to be an engaging and thought-provoking keynote.
Executive Director of General Service Foundation and NCG Board Member will help us close out the day with reflections for philanthropy in response to Dr. Pastor's conversation.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic downturn, and racial reckoning across the United States reaffirmed the need for equitable policies and strong policymakers advocating for community-driven priorities. Over the last two years it has been increasingly difficult to get either. The democratic system of the United States is in peril. Traditional party politics has become polarized, often driven by misinformation and disinformation.
The in-person reception is SOLD OUT. Registration is still open for the virtual conference.
