An escalating climate crisis. An ongoing pandemic. Frequent flooding events. Decades of disinvestment and systemic inequities that create barriers to opportunity.

These intersecting catastrophes are causing disproportionate harm to Black, Indigenous, Latinx and other communities of color.

What role can funders play in deploying resources and supporting community-led solutions that move us closer to justice?

Save the date for TFN’s GREEN and Urban Water Funders 2022 Virtual Convening: Building Power for Community-led Solutions. We’ll come together Feb. 16-17 from 12:30-4:30 p.m. ET to learn, share and strategize ways philanthropy is — and can be — stepping up in this unprecedented moment.

We’ll explore the challenges as well as reasons for hope, including the extraordinary efforts by frontline communities and grassroots advocates who continue to coordinate mutual aid and push elected officials to take actions protecting people and the planet.

We’ll look at government and multi-sector partnerships to mitigate climate emissions and protect water resources, potentially transformational federal and state investments in equitable and resilient water and energy systems, and increased efforts to prioritize spending in communities focused on environmental justice.

As climate-induced disasters barrel forward, destroying livelihoods and making it even tougher for vulnerable populations to bounce back, we know our time is now to move forward with urgency and purpose.

Our virtual meeting will offer funders an opportunity to:

  • Get an inside take from members of the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council on how advocates are working to influence and leverage a commitment to racial justice with federal climate and water investments.
  • Explore Hawaii’s innovative water, energy and climate work, and how lessons learned by these funders can inform and inspire your own grantmaking.
  • Reflect on ways we can better implement racial equity in our grantmaking practices and organizational cultures.
  • Network and connect with fellow funders and partners committed to creating sustainable, prosperous and equitable communities and regions.

We hope you’ll save the date for this funder-only virtual meeting February 16-17, 2022.
