CNJG is pleased to share this program hosted by Philanthropy New York with our members.

Segregation came about through an intentional process. If we want to be intentional about advancing a more racially equitable and just nation, the first step in the process of redressing and repairing is to make these historically invisible choices visible.

Come learn about how racism has shaped our current landscape and where and how philanthropy can play a reparative role in dismantling racial inequities. We are in the midst of an historic reckoning, and it is imperative that the momentum of the last year result in significant reforms that make a real difference in the lives of African American families. The fight to end racial segregation, while led by African Americans, must not be their fight alone. Philanthropy should be an active partner in producing systemic change.

Join Philanthropy New York for a discussion about how to change racial segregation, shrink the wealth gap and transform our communities. Explore what can be done and how foundations can make sure that this is on their mission-aligned agenda.
