The twin pandemics of COVID-19 and systemic racism have spurred a new moment of reckoning and national uprising for racial justice. Hear from funder colleagues on how they are responding to the call for action to build real power for Black communities and demand bold systems and institutional change in civic engagement, criminal justice, employment and social supports. Examples of collective action, individual foundation initiatives and centering grantmaking in racial equity will be shared.
