California Funder Session: Power Building for Equitable Impact
Thursday, June 24, 2021 | 9:00-10:30am PT
As funders think about what it means to engage in homelessness and housing policy change that is rooted in equity and justice, the strategies used to achieve true systems change require an intentional shift in power and voice. The question funders must ask is how can philanthropy ensure it is “powering with” rather than “powering over” activists, organizers, and people with lived expertise who are on the ground advancing the work? To answer that question, a understanding of what it means to build power and how it relates to homelessness and housing efforts is critical.
Join other funders in California on Thursday, June 24, for a interactive session focused on power building to advance policy change. This session is held in conjunction with the Housing California 2021 (Un)Conference and is free to attend.
During the session we will discuss what power building is, why funders who are committed to equity and justice should focus on it, and how philanthropy can advance homelessness and housing policy change in California through power building. Full agenda will be available soon.
