Sanctuary policies have garnered heightened media attention since the president signed an executive order on January 25 to withhold federal funding from cities that adopt such policies. What are sanctuary policies? What are the implications of the executive order?
GCIR is holding a philanthropy-only rapid response policy call to review the policies created by these executive orders and the short- and long-term implications for immigrant and refugee families. There will be an opportunity to ask experts your questions about these recent announcements.
Our 2016 national convening was an opportunity to foster shared learning, encourage peer dialogue, and highlight promising practices to help funders to respond to the needs of immigrant and refugee children, youth, and families, while advancing diverse grantmaking priorities ranging from health to education to economic opportunity.
This two-and-a-half-day event offered a mix of plenary sessions, issue-based conversations, knowledge-building workshops, learning labs, and off-site community conversations. All conference programming emphasized discussion, peer-based learning, and relationship building.
