From the Center for Disaster Philanthropy:
During disasters, immigrant individuals and families are among the most vulnerable populations. They face unique challenges, including immigration status and limited English proficiency, that impede their ability to access assistance and recover after a disaster. Together with Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees and Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative, we are hosting a webinar to discuss the role that philanthropy can play in supporting immigrants and their communities in recovery from disasters.
During the webinar, we will explore:
- How private philanthropy can ensure funded organizations are truly addressing the identified needs of immigrants and their communities.
- Building equity in the disaster recovery phase for immigrants, communities of color, low-income communities and other vulnerable populations.
- Learning to be an agent of change for immigrants in building more resilient communities.
- The role of affinity groups in funding for these communities.
- How to talk to donors and potential donors about funding for the needs of immigrants, including those with sensitive document status.
I hope you will join me Thursday, July 11 at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT for this important discussion.
