Immigrant and refugee children and families across Washington state — both newcomers and longtime residents —are afraid and are experiencing the direct impact of new federal immigration policies. This has created a domino effect as nonprofits are facing skyrocketing calls for assistance and services. With an expansion of detention, deportation and priorities for enforcement, limits on refugee admissions, attempts to create a travel ban, and more, the stakes have never been higher for Washington communities. Organizations throughout the state have been working on rapid responses with a diverse range of stakeholders in the face of critical needs in the community. Philanthropy is at a critical juncture as it considers the impact on communities it supports and funding strategies moving forward.

Washington has the most upside-down tax system in the nation where low and moderate income households pay a far higher share of their income in state taxes compared to the richest households.

In this member briefing, foundations will learn the key takeaways from this innovative research, hear how All In partners are implementing these lessons in their day to day communications, organizing, and policy work, and have an opportunity to discuss how these lessons can be integrated into the world of philanthropy.
