2017 was full of manmade and natural crises that erupted and disrupted communities across the globe. At the same time, moments of crisis are often the moments with the biggest opportunities. What opportunities to: resist, build community power and win -- will 2018 bring?

Join us for a multi-dimensional conversation on the state of the movement between members of the Bay Area Justice Funders Network (BAJFN) and movement leaders. We will explore intersectional and multi-issue strategies developed by grassroots leaders at the local, state, national, and international levels. We will also hear from allied funders providing key philanthropic support at each of those levels, and the role for funders in this moment. By exploring intersectional issues (such as environment, civic engagement, immigration, etc.) at several geographical scopes, participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the state of social justice movements, and how philanthropic institutions might best support ongoing efforts. 

The second half of the program will engage funders and movement leaders in deeper discussions to provide clarity around how their philanthropic institution might best support building community power. The Bay Area Justice Funders Network will also present a “State of the Network.

** The program will conclude with lunch. **
