Join Workforce Matters to discuss the strategies three foundations are using to respond to working families’ near-term needs related to income, employment, job training, and supportive services while sustaining their long-term work to reduce disparities and injustices and advance family economic security.
Join us as we discuss immigration, current trends, and perceptions related to culture, security, and the economy. Hear from experts about problem/solution framing, and the role of cultural strategies in shifting the polarizing immigration narrative. Learn about some of the ways peers and changemakers are using these strategies to promote social inclusion and belonging, to galvanize supporters and to recalibrate our democracy and our values.
The Children, Youth & Family Funders Roundtable's series—the Impact of Immigration Action on Children and Families—has sought to build awareness and knowledge of key issues, share resources, and explore how funders—both those deeply engaged in immigration issues and those just discovering the intersect of their core portfolios with issues facing immigrant families.
Over the last few years, we has seen several cultural moments, such as #MeToo and the response to police violence, take place that have raised social justice struggles to the national platform. In this discussion, FCCP will explore how grassroots leaders have taken these moments, or helped create these moments, to build long-term power in their communities and hear how funders have been supporting this work.
