How can mission investors help advance policies that benefit communities, not only through their impact investments but through thoughtful, strategic, and appropriate engagement with public officials? Join us on February 3rd at 3-4:30PM ET for a webinar exploring the following questions and more:
• In the new Congress and Presidential Administration how can we build not only the infrastructure needed for more just and equitable communities but also mend the fractures we face as a nation?
• In the urgency for a just and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, how should foundations invest their time and assets in the context of a new Congress and Presidential Administration?
• What new or strengthened public policies can reverse the hollowing out of Black, Latino, Indigenous, urban and rural communities that have for generations been excluded from the dividends of economic growth?
• In the urgency for a just and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, what roles can foundations play to increase capital flowing to and through community development financial institutions and minority depository institutions?
