Join the New York Environmental Funders Network for its Spring meeting.
From Vision to Reality: What Does it Really Take? Using three timely examples – Congestion Pricing, the NYS Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) and the NYC Commercial Waste Zone law – we will discuss the three critical phases of advocacy: from policy formulation, to enactment, to implementation. With all three of these landmark campaigns entering the crucial third phase, our panel of experts will speak about philanthropy’s role in supporting advocates to get all the away from vision to reality.
