California Dignity for Families Fund: Learning Series

Organized by: Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees

Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) is hosting a monthly roundtable discussion centering invisibilized communities and often neglected topics within the migrant justice movement. All too often, issues of anti-blackness and racism, homophobia and transphobia as well as misogyny and ableism, among others, breed deep misalignment within our movement and bar our collective efforts to transform systems of harm and oppression. Our intention with this 6-month offering is to promote community-building through the powerful tools of political education and…

Workplace Equity: A Framework for Building Economic Mobility

Organized by: Bay Area – Asset Funders Network

With a 3.6% unemployment rate, the U.S. economy is clearly recovering from the COVID 19 pandemic at record speeds.

For many Black men — older and disabled Black men in particular—continue to experience persistent gaps in both employment and economic opportunity. For Black and Latinx women, the employment rate still showed declines of 0.8 and 0.4 percentage points greater, respectively (as of…

Family Philanthropy Conference: Navigating Transitions, Redefining Traditions

Organized by: SoCal Grantmakers

Many Family Foundations are at a crossroads today — torn between their legacies and values and who they are being called to be in a rapidly changing world. Over the past two years, we’ve seen a multitude of transitions occur in family philanthropy: assets are increasing significantly upon the death of a founder, leadership is experiencing burnout, and younger generations feel excluded from decision-making power. And, more than ever, philanthropy is urged to think differently about its practices in favor of grantmaking that…
