We are heartened by the thoughtful resources and responses from many of our colleagues in the philanthropic sector and have created this resource page to compile a list of events and other resources related to post-election response and organizing for philanthropy. You can read our full statement on the 2020 election here.
We will be updating this page regularly.
Upcoming Partner Events, Webinars, and Briefings
We are in a time of transition and ambiguity, socially and seasonally. It’s in moments like these that we need to deepen our practice of resilience, to ready ourselves to lead through what will come next, whatever that may be. To help support your resilience and leadership, Rockwood will be hosting a 75-minute Post-Election Community Call on Thursday November 12th from 1-2:15 PM PT / 4-5:15 PM ET. We’ll gather together in community and connect, reflect, and replenish ourselves so that we can keep working towards a world where all can thrive.
Just one week after the election, as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, and as calls for racial justice ring louder than ever, where are we headed in the LGBTQ movement? Join movement leaders in this important virtual discussion, hosted annually by Horizons Foundation.
Building off findings from recent research from Funders for LGBTQ Issues, this webinar will offer an overview of the current state of philanthropic support for Black LGBTQ communities and consider philanthropy’s role in the past, present, and future of Black LGBTQ movements.
As we take stock of the outcomes of the 2020 election we invite members and partners of Funders for LGBTQ Issues to join us for a community drop-in space with your colleagues in LGBTQ philanthropy. We value the informal connections we once shared at in-person events and are striving to create those opportunities virtually in the wake of an exhausting year. This virtual community space will offer an opportunity to debrief the outcome of the election, share ideas and resources to sustain long-term movements for LGBTQ and BIPOC liberation, and highlight ways Funders for LGBTQ Issues and our member community can support your work and wellbeing.
Join a select group of funders as Proteus Fund devotes two four-hour convenings to the impact of November’s elections on philanthropy’s role in advancing a progressive vision for social justice.
