Monthly Immigration Policy Calls
Held on the third Thursday of most months, these calls provide the latest updates on timely policy issues affecting immigrants and refugees—and explore issues that are particularly relevant or pressing for philanthropy. At critical junctures, we will also produce written policy updates and resource materials to deepen funders’ understanding of key developments and their implications for philanthropy. GCIR is pleased to assume responsibility for these monthly policy calls from Geri Mannion of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, who organized similar briefings over the past few years. Please contact Aryah Somers Landsberger, director of programs, with your suggestions on topics, speakers, and resources to share.
As needed, we will also hold rapid response calls to consider the implications of emerging policies and other developments. These will be held on an ad hoc basis.
Calls are open to GCIR members, other grantmaking institutions, philanthropic advisors, and members and staff of funder affinity groups and regional associations of grantmakers. (Participation is limited to organizations that share GCIR’s core values.)
