San Diego Grantmakers is delighted to share this program being facilitated by our partners at Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees.

As our country faces a national reckoning on race and anti-Black racism, immigrant rights funders stand in an unprecedented moment to invest in leaders, organizations, and cross-movement collaborations that are advancing racial justice and equity. Immigrant rights advocates, grassroots organizers, and activists are striving to address anti-Blackness and xenophobia within our communities, to build transformational alliances across movements, to center the leadership of Black immigrants and refugees within our movement, and to build power among communities of color who are striving to achieve racial equity and justice for all.

Now more than ever, immigrant rights funders can take affirmative steps to fully embrace, support, and advance racial justice and anti-racism work.  Join us for an illuminating and engaging conversation with leaders from across the country organizing at the intersections of immigrant justice, racial justice, criminal justice, and abolition. We will hear from movement leaders who are organizing Black immigrants and refugees, leading local fights against sheriffs, jails, and detention, and deepening cross-movement partnerships to advance racial justice.

Registration closes Wednesday, October 21, 2020. Please note: To register, you will need to create a quick user account on GCIR's website.
