Impact Investing & Divestment
Racial capitalism is one of the major factors that inflicts harm upon – and withholds power and resources from – people and communities who seek to stay, move freely, work, transform, and thrive. GCIR is focused on moving money and power to immigrant, refugee, and asylum seeker communities and movement groups. Understanding the proportion of philanthropic dollars that go to the immigrant justice movement is crucial to this advocacy. The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) has documented the state of philanthropic funding for immigrant and refugee communities, and offers crucial recommendations for grantmakers who hope to liberate philanthropic assets in support of these communities.
Find all program-related materials for GCIR's webinar, "Transforming the Funding Landscape for the Immigrant Justice Movement" here, including the recording, PowerPoint, and other materials.
Foundations can demonstrate their values and support immigrants and their communities by joining the movement to divest and reinvest.
