*This program is hosted by our partner, Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*
This event will bring together funders and philanthropy serving organizations from across the country to learn how funders and community-based organizations partnered to build the capacity of underrepresented communities of color to participate fully in the redistricting process and what that means for where we go from here.
We will also describe future plans for Fair Representation in Redistricting, the funder collaborative working on community-centered redistricting – and highlight opportunities for deeper funder collaboration moving forward.
Increasingly, fair and equitable redistricting is a core part of achieving progress on a host of important philanthropic issues and building a participatory, multiracial democracy. Civic engagement coalitions built unprecedented infrastructure to engage historically underrepresented communities in the 2021-22 redistricting cycle. With this briefing, we are excited to continue the conversation about ways to build on this critical work to continue advancing equity and justice for communities of color and get more funders engaged.
What will you learn?
- The experiences of both funders and frontline advocates from different parts of the country in advancing nonpartisan engagement in redistricting to strengthen community power and secure fair representation
- Successes and challenges, urgent ongoing needs, and lessons for the future
Who should attend?
