The systems, communities, and tools we call infrastructure are the scaffolding upon which creative and durable solutions to our most intractable challenges and injustices can be built. In the face of persistent resistance to meaningful immigration reform at the federal level, and both wins and losses at the state and local levels, philanthropy must pay careful attention to the condition of the movement for immigrant justice. In particular, strategic investments should be made that not only ensure that short-term campaigns and projects are successful, but also that the movement has the ability to build robust and sustainable infrastructure that paves the way for future victories.
Join GCIR and our partners from the Four Freedoms Fund, the Latino Community Fund Georgia, the California Community Foundation, and the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation to discuss the importance of investing in movement infrastructure and to learn directly from funder colleagues how they define and prioritize this work. The breadth and variety of options for supporting movement development is significant, and in this session funders will explore both the challenges and opportunities for investing in powerful and purposeful infrastructure in support of immigrant justice and belonging.
