About this event
2020 has been a year of momentous upheaval and struggle as the most vulnerable in our communities have had to face the economic, social and political challenges stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread discrimination and bias toward BIPOC and immigrant communities. Nonprofit leaders have had to find new ways to meet their communities’ needs as they work toward a more just and equitable future.
Please join us for a two-hour session, as we hear directly from the leaders of immigrant-serving organizations about the challenges they have faced, the solutions they have developed and how funders can better meet their needs. This is a unique learning opportunity for foundations, donors and other supporters to learn how to better support capacity-building and empowerment in immigrant and refugee communities.
The full list of speakers is still being developed but will include leaders from organizations working on power-building, health equity and providing for basic needs. Confirmed speakers include representatives from Afghan Health Initiative, Colectiva Legal del Pueblo, the Community Health Board Coalition, Eastside Refugee Immigrant Coalition, the COVID-19 Relief Fund for Undocumented Individuals, Refugee Women’s Alliance, Seattle Rideshare Drivers Association, The Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network, the West African Community Council and Young Women Empowered.
