Today, the Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration’s attempt to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

This webinar is part of a series that tackles the realities of racism strategically, and connects these threads to our present-day grantmaking practices in collaboration with Lori Villarosa of Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE).
Justice. Belonging. Humanity. Courage. Solidarity.
Grounded in these values that drive our mission, GCIR condemns racism and racial terror. We condemn the racism and racial terror that have oppressed and brutalized African Americans for more than 400 years.
A pledge from California philanthropic organizations:
The COVID–19 public health and economic crisis and the murders of Black Americans by police, have laid bare the deep inequities across our state. We need bold steps to ensure a future based on economic inclusion, racial equity, and compassionate humanity.
This funder briefing will contextualize state and federal tax policy shifts, provide lessons learned from the field, and offer opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration, and action planning.
