*This program is hosted by our partner, Economic Opportunity Funders (EOF), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.*
The COVID-19 pandemic and recession have exposed and deepened our current economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities. Increasing political polarization, spiraling economic inequality, conflict over who belongs (particularly along lines of race, ethnicity, and national origin), and rising fascism are all putting our democracy at risk.
Join this session to hear from funder colleagues on how they are supporting policy advocacy, organizing, and civic engagement strategies to build a more inclusive and equitable economy and democracy. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect and react to the panel discussion and share a question or takeaway this discussion brings up for them in small breakouts at the end of the program.
