COVID-19 and Communities of Color on March 27RSVP for Event
California Funders for Boys and Men of Color in partnership with the Alliance for Boys and Men of Color present:
COVID-19 and Communities of Color
A video call for funders and organizers
You will hear from:
- Marc Philpart, Principal Coordinator, Alliance for Boys and Men of Color
- Cynthia Choi, Co-Executive Director, Chinese for Affirmative Action
- Norris Henderson, Founder/Executive Director of Voice of the Experienced (VOTE) and co-founder of Formerly Incarcerated and Convicted People’s Movement
- Abraham Medina, Director, California Alliance for Youth and Community Justice (CAYCJ)
- Silky Shah, Executive Director, Detention Watch Network
- Pete White, Executive Director, LA CAN
Join advocates on the frontlines and peers in philanthropy for an in-depth look at how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting communities of color in California. We will hear from leaders of organizations that are responding to the urgent needs of communities most impacted by the pandemic and preparing for the longer-term consequences.
The video call will be an opportunity to get an understanding of the current conditions and how communities across the country are responding. Organizers will address emerging issues, such as the criminalization of boys and men of color under current restrictions, and the policy demands that seek to remedy long-standing racial inequities that have been exacerbated by the current crisis. Funders also will hear about immediate and long-term opportunities to take action.
The video call is organized by California Funders for Boys and Men of Color, a network of CEOs from the state’s leading philanthropic institutions, and Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, a national network of more than 200 organizations and leaders.
