While Black-led immigrant, refugee, and asylum seeker organizations have always confronted extraordinary challenges with limited resources, this year has pushed Black immigrant groups and leaders to their limits. A global pandemic has further exposed and exacerbated longstanding racial, economic, health and environmental inequities.  In being called upon to meet the needs of their communities as well as serve in multiple movement roles and spaces, Black immigrant, refugee, and asylum seeker leaders and organizations have been pulled in many directions and are experiencing extreme exhaustion, pain, and duress.

Yet, through it all Black immigrant leaders continue to constitute an essential part the overlapping immigrant and racial justice movements. Join the Four Freedoms Fund and Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees for a discussion with leaders from these movements and the release of a report with recommendations for philanthropy.

This event is open to GCIR members; staff and trustees of grantmaking foundations; philanthropic advisors; and staff of philanthropic support organizations only and you must create an account before registering.
