Accelerating Impact with Technology: Building Skills, Confidence and Community

November 17, 2014,
11:00am to 12:00pm
PST
Free Webinar
Whether your focus is economic self-sufficiency, community change, health, or education, the Internet is changing the way you achieve your goals. As more information and services move online, people who are “digitally isolated” grow more excluded from opportunity and less connected to their communities. Although most American households are now online, a large minority – about 30 percent, including many whose members are poorer, less educated, and older – are not. Please join us for a conversation that explores how local foundations, working in partnership with government and the private sector, can successfully accelerate technology access and build capacity to bring isolated families and communities online.

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.

Philanthropy’s Response to the Addition of a Citizenship Question to the 2020 Census

In co-sponsorship with many organizations including Philanthropy Northwest, the Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) is hosting a webinar centered on making public comments about citizenship question planned for the 2020 census. On June 8, the Commerce Department (which oversees the Census Bureau) invited the public to comment on the paperwork associated with the 2020 census. The public has 60 days – until August 7 – to submit comments. This is one of the few opportunities for philanthropy to make its case that the citizenship question should be removed from the census questionnaire. Regardless of whether public comments will move the Trump administration to reverse its decision, this establishes an important record for the public, Congress and the courts to consider.
