Social justice organizations are at a crossroads. On one hand, leaders and staff are confronting some of the greatest challenges in decades: the rise of white supremacy, an ever-widening wealth gap, rolling back of voter protections, and the concentration of political and economic power in the hands of a small number of people.  On the other hand, the organizations best positioned to address these issues are in crisis, with leaders being attacked, disagreement confused for trauma, and the ever-changing nature and expectations of work creating a challenging leadership terrain. What can grantmaking organizations do for themselves and the organizations that they support to better navigate this moment and support the creation of durable institutions for long-term social change?

Join Carmen Rojas, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of The Marguerite Casey Foundation, Glen Galaich, chief executive officer of the Stupski Foundation, Dimple Abichandani, executive director of the General Service Foundation and Adrian Haro, CEO of The Workers Lab, for this important discussion.
