Panelists will share key program strategies and help us see how their work builds toward greater systems change that benefits people, communities, and land. We’ll hear examples from funders working at different intervention points in this work including resident empowerment, leadership development, decision-support research, and policy change, and how long-term aspirations are advanced through shorter term gains. We will also explore how these approaches are being impacted by COVID-19 and racial justice organizing and actions.
