?We are in an unprecedented moment of protest and mobilization against the biting impact of racism and inequality. This reckoning is coming just a few months before an election of enormous consequence, with challenges to participation as a result of COVID-19. What can philanthropy do to be most effective? Can it pivot as fast as is needed? What needs to change? Join a conversation with leading practitioners in philanthropy who will talk about all of these issues and the urgency the times demand.
