Changing the Political Discourse: Working Class Communities on the Frontlines

October 13, 2016,
10:00am to 11:30am
PDT
Webinar


During this current election cycle, the climate of political vitriol towards people of color, immigrants, and individuals of different faiths has been stoked by economic insecurity, trickle down intimidation tactics, and ‘blame others’ hate speech. No doubt, the impact of this current tone of political rhetoric will extend beyond the immediate election. What can Foundations do to move working class constituents from the side lines to the front lines of policy change that will improve their economic well-being and not work against them? Join our distinguished panel for a discussion to explore ways that funders can and are using advocacy communications to provide leadership on shaping a narrative of possibility and supporting their grantees in embracing new approaches to engaging in advocacy across issues, populations and communities.
