Southern California Grantmakers Policy Conference: Build Anew

Program Dates 
April 13 & April 15, 2021

Virtual - Join SCG for two mornings exploring the policy and advocacy actions needed to combat the challenges of a generation and maximize lessons learned from listening deeply, building power, and meeting the social justice movements of 2020.  Celine Coggins, executive director for Grantmakers for Education, will be one of the guest speakers.

Our country faces a set of multidimensional and interrelated crises — the Covid-19 pandemic, racial and economic injustice, and the urgency of climate change — which demand cohesive and dynamic policy responses. With a new federal administration and major government budget deficits, state and local policymaking, as well as public-private partnerships, will remain integral to effecting change. Despite the challenges, there is reason to be hopeful: 2020 provided an abundance of lessons, from the Movements for Black Lives to what constitutes essential work to the power of political leadership embedded in communities.

With new vision and commitment, join your peers in the philanthropic and civic sectors for candid conversations on what it takes to simultaneously undo the damages exacerbated by the pandemic and build anew the systems needed for a just future.
