Join the next quarterly meeting of GCIR’s California Immigrant Inclusion Initiative, which facilitates funder engagement, funding coordination and alignment, and member-led initiatives, creating opportunities for funders to leverage the collective impact of their grantmaking and fortify the immigration funding field in California.
In this webinar, funders will learn from experts on the ground about their efforts to champion universal representation and how philanthropy can resource and support their work.
A 2021 poll from the Cato Institute shows 72 percent of respondents consider immigration to be good for the nation. Yet, many people continue to have complicated and conflicting opinions on the issue, often based on a lack of understanding of how the immigration system operates and exacerbated by disinformation campaigns. Research helps identify what inspires people to act, while cultural interventions and organizing affect perceptions and how we relate to one another. In this webinar, we will explore the strategies and tactics organizations are deploying to move hearts and minds in support of immigration.
We're thrilled to share that GCIR's Biennial National Convening will take place October 28-30, 2024, at The Westin Book Cadillac in Detroit, Michigan. Our convening brings together the sector’s leading voices to delve deeply into key issues, uplift power-building efforts, strategize on ways to amplify the work of historically marginalized immigrant communities, and explore the intersectional advocacy and organizing work being done to effect systemic change.
