**This program is hosted by our partner, Funders Together To End Homelessness, who has extended an invitation to PNY members.
As Funders Together and our network work toward housing justice as our north star, we must figure out we transform, not just reform the policies and systems that prevent people from having stable and safe housing. In this webinar, we will hear how Funders Together member the Butler Family Fund has shifted their strategy and focus toward policy and advocacy and grassroots organizing to break the cycle between the criminal legal system and homelessness.
We will also be joined by Austin Justice Coalition and Action Center on Race & The Economy, two community partners who work at the intersection of racial and economic justice. They will discuss how philanthropy can resource and partner in the transition away from broken systems, such as our current criminal-legal system, into transformative housing solutions.
This webinar is the second in a series highlighting how our members across the country are grappling with difficult juxtapositions between supporting immediate policy reform while co-creating a more visionary, liberated future.
