FUNDERS: REGISTER NOWFCCP’s programming is open to invited speakers and philanthropic professionals only.
Resistance is not futile! Come learn from movement leaders and funders how post-election shifts in the political landscape have instigated new thinking around ways to create effective coalitions and build resistance to the anti-democratic initiatives being advanced around the country. We’ll explore opposition strategies that are forging new collaborations and opportunities to win, and how funders and grantees must work and think differently if we are to build a longer-term movement for change. Together we’ll delve deeper into the post-election mobilizations and movement-building efforts that are aimed at building power. This is the fight of our generation and we’re in it together!
