RACIAL EQUITY & JUSTICE IN PHILANTHROPY FUNDERS’ SUMMIT

Join LEVEL and The Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada for a two-day summit that will bring together funders and communities interested in learning more about how to do racial equity and justice work in philanthropy. You’ll hear from guest speakers like Lori Villarosa, Executive Director of Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity, who will share insights on:

  • The current context and needs of racial equity and racial justice funding in British Columbia and Canada more broadly;
  • Lessons we may want to share with one another to build a network of Canadian philanthropic organizations in order to move a racial justice agenda forward;
  • Lessons gleaned from U.S. philanthropy’s grantmaking work in racial equity and justice; and
  • Exploration of opportunities to help strengthen ties between the racial equity and justice movements in Canada and the U.S.
