Book Talk – Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America

Location Title: 
Webinar

Funders Together to End Homelessness hosts this April 4 Book Talk. The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein unravels the case that racial, ethnic, and economic residential segregation today is no accident, but rather the result of intentional government policies, such as redlining, enforcing racial covenants, discriminatory lending, and outright segregation in federal programs.

Join author and economist Richard Rothstein for a conversation about the history of housing segregation in the United States. Read the book, reflect on its implications on the current state of homelessness in our country, and come prepared to ask Professor Rothstein your questions. A guided Q&A session will follow to help put a philanthropic lens on the issues.

The Environmental Movement in the New Federal Landscape

Location Title: 
Teleconference

New policies emerging at the federal level regarding the environment and climate change have the potential to have profound effects domestically and globally. President Trump’s proposal to cut back the EPA’s budget by 31% is the largest cut of any U.S. agency. Further, some reports cite that his planned policies could lead to an increase in emissions equivalent to 60% of American homes by 2025. Some environmental leaders assert that the planet can ill afford this direction nor the discounted attitude of science itself. What is the environmental movement doing? Please join us for a one hour funder's teleconference to hear from two of our region’s most informed leaders: Ken Kimmell, President of Union of Concerned Scientists and Bradley Campbell, President of Conservation Law Foundation. They will cover the status of policy changes and strategies of defense as well as the hopeful signs that clean energy and a clean environment is a populist interest.

Human Trafficking in the New Immigration Landscape and Philanthropy's Role

Location Title: 
Webinar

Increasing obstacles to migration will not stop migration, but it does lead migrants to take greater risks. The new administration’s focus on restrictive and punitive U.S. immigration policies are likely to drive a greater number of children, women, and others into the hands of human traffickers. Those same enforcement policies may also lead fewer victims to turn to law enforcement for fear of deportation. Join this call to learn about how federal policy will impact trafficking victims and survivors, the existing support infrastructure for survivors, and how philanthropy is responding, from investments in prevention and direct services to systemic solutions.
