* Please note:  you will need to join via the Zoom Desktop Client, Zoom Mobile App, or a H.323/SIP device to ensure that you can participate in the breakout discussions.

Join practitioners and fellow funders for a conversation on how COVID-19 (‘Coronavirus’) is impacting 2020 civic engagement programs, organizations, and people, and discuss how to support shifts in program and operations. We will discuss voter registration, education and turnout, census, ballot initiatives, election protection, issue organizing and community engagement, and policy needs, as well as physical and mental health, wellness, and healing.  Following the opening conversation we will conduct small group breakout sessions to learn specific short-term rapid response needs and longer-term impacts to the ecosystem, and then return to the full group to discuss how philanthropy is responding in the moment.
