Join Partners for HOME for a two-part workshop series designed to help Georgia funders recognize the racialized system of homelessness and guide new approaches in homelessness funding towards an anti-racist system. Co-sponsored by the Georgia Grantmakers Alliance and Annie E. Casey Foundation, the series features current work in Atlanta and includes an intimate conversation on the racial disparities in homelessness coupled with a live account of the impact of racism on one local woman’s path out of homelessness. The series wraps up with examples of the racial equity lens you can use in funding decisions with dialogue on needed policy changes.
The workshop series will feature distinguished panelists across the space of homelessness, funding and policy. Please learn more about the speakers at each session below:
