Giving Compass’ Take:
• In this webinar, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf discusses the impact of coronavirus on the community and how her leadership will focus on equity issues exacerbated by this crisis.
• How are donors working with local government officials to protect communities during the pandemic? How can donors center equity in their relief strategies?
• Here are three ways you can help communities impacted by COVID-19.
