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.
Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees, Four Freedoms Fund, and Rise Together Fund invite you to a critical conversation on centering racial justice in the immigrant justice movement.
Join GCIR and the RISE Together Fund for a discussion on the rise of white nationalism, research and strategies on responding to hate, and how funders can support BIPOC communities that are working to build solidarity across movements.
In this session, participants will hear from three different nonprofit partners to gain deeper insight into the intersection of law and immigrant justice, the role of litigation in advancing a broader social and racial justice agenda, and will explore concrete ways philanthropy can invest in litigation strategies to advance the interests of immigrant communities.
Join our panelists as they discuss how their work serves to build the broader narrative of immigrant justice whereby we honor every person’s human dignity, including immigrants.
Becoming a GCIR member makes it possible for us to continue providing vital services to grantmakers and guide timely and strategic philanthropic responses to address the most pressing issues facing immigrants and refugees.
Join the Institute for Local Government and Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees for this special session. Drawing on demographic information and a recent research project, panelists will discuss key legal service needs in the state and how government and philanthropic investments can support community members working toward stabilizing their immigration status.
One month after a 7.2-magnitude earthquake killed over 2,200 Haitians and left 650,000 more in need of humanitarian assistance, the Biden administration is undertaking a mass expulsion of Haitians seeking safety in the United States. Under the guise of stopping the spread of Covid-19 through the Trump-era Title 42 policy, migrants are being sent back to a country reeling from overlapping crises and decades of political upheaval and natural disasters. Returning to Haiti is not a viable option for them.
This four-page timeline summarizes immigrant and refugee policy developments and philanthropic responses from 1990 to 2020.
