10:00am to 12:00pm PDT
Wilburforce Foundation, Seattle
2034 NW 56th Street, 4th Floor, Seattle, WA 98107

In recent years we've seen major progress on seemingly intractable social issues including juvenile justice reform and healthcare disparities among vulnerable populations. Strategic, coordinated media projects and campaigns are tipping the scales and helping to rapidly advance policy change across a wide-spectrum of issues. Join leaders from The California Endowment, Rasmuson Foundation and Media Impact Funders as they discuss communication strategies that are moving the needle, and how funders can incorporate lessons learned.
