The past three months have witnessed dramatic shifts in federal policy, and many New Yorkers have found themselves living in greater fear of discrimination, deportation, arrest, and poverty. Join a panel of funders and nonprofit leaders for a moderated discussion about the role of philanthropy in preserving critical social and constitutional protections during times of political change and uncertainty, followed by a Q & A with attendees.

- How to move forward as federal policies and programs continue to change
