About this event
Join Neighborhood Funders Group's Integrated Rural Strategies Group (IRSG) and Engage New York for this launch event of their new report on rural organizing and power building titled Resourcing Rural Organizing Infrastructure: A New York Case Study. This report presents a landscape scan of New York State’s community organizing infrastructure; analysis of the role of rural communities in designing, implementing and enforcing progressive statewide policy change; and a comprehensive set of recommendations for funders to resource this critical work. In this session, you will hear from the report’s author as well as funders and community leaders who will reflect on the report’s findings and recommendations. This event will allow for discussion to identify a shared action agenda for funders to collaborate in support of building rural organizing infrastructure.
This webinar is designed for funders both in New York State as well as national and place-based funders working in other geographies who are interested in the critical role that rural communities play in movements for racial, economic, gender and climate justice.
