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.

If you want to submit questions for the speakers, please send them in advance to Ceil Erickson or Rachel Allen.
