Climate Resilience and Environmental Justice in Florida Communities

Publication date: 
01/2018

Session resources from #2018FPN Driven, FPN's 10th Annual Statewide Summit on Philanthropy.

The existential threats to people and the environment from climate change are increasingly well understood. NOAA’s 27th annual State of the Climate report revealed record-setting climate change indicators in 2016, resulting in extreme global events including late-season Hurricane Matthew, which devastated parts of Northeast Florida. In addition to more active hurricane seasons, climate change indicators – such as extreme heat, severe drought and vector-born disease such as Zika – carry systemic implications for Florida’s marginalized communities. Experts shared why climate justice, community-based change initiatives and integrating climate resilience and equity into your grantmaking portfolio deserves philanthropic attention, as well as important ways philanthropy can support and amplify this work.

Human Trafficking, Modern Day Slavery

Publication date: 
01/2018

Session resources from #2018FPN Driven, FPN's 10th Annual Statewide Summit on Philanthropy.

Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery that occurs in every state and Florida is no exception. Its impact is felt across Florida communities and populations from the Keys to the panhandles and everywhere in between. Using the most recent available data, learn how this issue impacts our state followed by a discussion about how as funders we can collaborate to work on an issue that is currently not resonating with the grantmaking community. Through brainstorming exercises focusing on the Collective Impact model, we will work to come up with ways that we can bring the issue of Human Trafficking out of the shadows and begin to engage in community conversations.

Publication date:

Session resources from #2018FPN Driven, FPN's 10th Annual Statewide Summit on Philanthropy. 

For those working on a cause they care about, their first instinct is often to make sure that as many people as possible are aware of the issue. But when our work is rooted in change, is it ever enough for people to simply know more about something? Public relations professor and public interest communicator Ann Christiano opened #2018FPN with tools rooted in social science that are fundamental to driving change. Ann Christiano is the the Frank Karel Chair in Public Interest Communications at the University of Florida.
