Invest Together Funders Briefing and Update
Hear from our community partners and coalition organizers on this national effort and to discuss your questions as well as opportunities to get involved.

The Invest Together Fund supports grassroots campaigns and organizations combating the well-resourced, anti-democratic attacks that threaten our public schools, racial justice and democracy.

Philanthropy can seize this opportunity to support campaigns which organize the majorities in many places who support honest curriculum and public education.

The Fund invests in financial and technical assistance to grassroots community partners across 19 states and dozens of school districts. It leverages Schott Foundation’s intermediary role and grantmaking capacity to the grassroots with NYU Metro Center’s research, tool development and trainings. This combines with Race Forward’s powerful H.E.A.L Together organizing infrastructure and campaign building to shift narrative and advance multiracial democracy.

Our conversation will be led by:

- Yana Batra, Georgia Youth Justice Coalition
- Dennis Chin, Race Forward
- Dr. James Ford, Center for Racial Equity in Education (CREED), North Carolina
- Kesha Hamilton, School Board, Jackson Public Schools, Michigan
- Megan Hester, NYU Metro Center
- Dr. John H. Jackson, Schott Foundation for Public Education
- Eboni-Rose Thompson, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies

Mar 16, 2023 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
