This session will last 75 minutes.
Building on our power building and shifting webinar series, this California Homelessness & Housing Policy Funders Network webinar will explore the measurement component of power building strategies and how the evaluation process in itself is a form of shifting and sharing power.
We’ll be joined by Regina Schwartz, who will speak to the importance of measuring power building efforts to understand the policy impact, getting outside of the data to focus on people and stories, and how it can influence stakeholders to make the case for future investments.
We’ll also hear from Julie Fernandes, Associate Director at the Rockefeller Family Fund and Joseph Tomás McKellar, Executive Director, PICO California as they talk about their work together through the Democracy & Power Innovation Fund, a partnership between state-based organizing groups, social science researchers, and aligned funders in support of learning and innovative programs that explore the connections between organizing, civic engagement, and building progressive power, with a focus on work in and led by communities of color.
