Register for all three dates in this series here.

A deepening climate crisis. Persistent racial and ethnic inequities. The economic and social fallout of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mobility advocates, activists and funders have found themselves at the crossroads of these intersecting issues over the past year, moving with urgency and purpose in communities across the country.

What have we learned? Where are the opportunities for impact? And what comes next in the fight to advance sustainable and equitable mobility?

Join the Mobility and Access Collaborative, an initiative of The Funders Network, for a three-part Summer Strategy Series this June.

These interactive sessions are designed around facilitated funder-to-funder conversations — giving us a chance to connect, share and strategize together.

We hope you’ll join us for these sessions below.
