About this event

The Democracy Northwest Funders Table brings together funders focused on civic engagement, community power-building and making political representation more inclusive and accountable.

This session will focus on narrative and its ability to shape cultural understanding and structural change. We will discuss how funders can expand the narrative of the American identity to include a more racially reflective democracy. Our speaker, Angela Peoples, will share information on the Bridge Project, a collaborative narrative research project of the Social & Economic Justice Leaders Project and The South focused on developing a future story of American identity, of belonging in and to this country.
