A new federal administration presents new and unique opportunities to advance racial and housing justice to end homelessness and housing instability. As philanthropy looks to engage with the Biden-Harris administration, funders must focus on ensuring that people with lived expertise are centered to help to build racially just housing infrastructure and that there are strong accountability measures to maintain it.
Join us for this funder call on how philanthropy can ensure the first year of partnership with this administration sets a strong foundation for creating and implementing bold policies rooted in housing justice. After hearing updates on developments with the most recent COVID-19 relief package, Amanda Andere, CEO of Funders Together, will share key recommendations from our recently released Recommendations for Philanthropy's Engagement with the Federal Administration. We will also be joined by Lindsay Knotts, contributing author on the New Deal for Housing Justice, to hear her insights on the playbook's homelessness policy recommendations.
- Amanda Andere, CEO, Funders Together to End Homelessness
- Lindsay Knotts, Independent Consultant and former USICH Policy Director, and contributing author to A New Deal for Housing Justice
- Moderator: Stephanie Chan, Director of Funders Together to End Homelessness
