*This program is hosted by our partner, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*

Join Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees, Four Freedoms Fund, and Rise Together Fund for a critical conversation on centering racial justice in the immigrant justice movement. As our country faces a national reckoning on race and anti-Black racism, immigrant rights funders stand in an unprecedented moment to invest in leaders, organizations, and cross-movement collaborations that are advancing racial justice and equity. Immigrant rights advocates, grassroots organizers, and activists are striving to address anti-Blackness and xenophobia within our communities, to build transformational alliances across movements, to center the leadership of Black immigrants and refugees within our movement, and to build power among communities of color who are striving to achieve racial equity and justice for all. 

  • What steps immigrant rights funders can take to fully embrace, support and advance racial justice
  • How leaders from across the country are organizing at the intersections of immigrant justice, racial justice, criminal justice and abolition
  • How leaders are organizing support for Black immigrants and refugees at the local level


  • Sylvie Bello, Executive Director, Cameroonian American Council
  • Daniel Garcia Rodriguez, Executive Director, United Fort Worth

  • Rini Chakraborty (Moderator), Senior Program Officer, Four Freedoms Fund
