This session will last 75 minutes.
This summer, the California Homelessness & Housing Policy Funders Network came together to establish a shared knowledge around philanthropy’s role in building power for equity and justice and how it relates to moving homelessness and housing policy in California.
How do we take that knowledge and apply it to grantmaking strategies to build and shift power? During this webinar led by racial justice organizers at Liberation House, we will discuss the various power building strategies funders should support and how these strategies can advance homelessness and housing policy change in California. We'll also hear lessons learned from The California Endowment around their Building Healthy Communities initiative and how it contributed to their work to shift and build power to advance equitable policies that intersect with housing justice.
- Understand the various strategies to build and shift power to influence policy change
- Learn how to influence your foundation to support power building and implement strategies to advance policies that address homelessness and lack of affordable housing
