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.

  • Lessons learned from funders who engaged in rapid-response grantmaking after the election (including collaborative funds like the Liberty Fund, the Immigrant Rights Fund at the Brooklyn Community Foundation, and Open Society Foundations' Communities Against Hate rapid response fund, among others)
  • Emerging priorities for funders focused on immigration, healthcare, civil rights, social services, and other issues
  • How to move forward as federal policies and programs continue to change
