Presented by Funders Together

This is a 2-hour virtual training.

Housing justice requires the assurance of safe, secure, affordable, and dignified living conditions where people have power and agency over how and where they live. Advancing housing justice, though, requires all of us to take a bold, unapologetic look at the dynamics that perpetuate racial inequity and take the necessary steps to rectify it. Funders Together has an intention to move the philanthropic sector towards investing in power-building and power-sharing, understanding that philanthropy has tools beyond grantmaking to end homelessness and achieve housing justice.  

Before we can build, share, and map power, we must understand what power is and the many ways it shows up in our work as individuals and institutions. In this 2-hour, interactive virtual training, Liberation House will guide participants into understanding what power is. We will analyze the power that we have as individuals and institutions and explore hidden types of power, with the goal of building the muscle to critically analyze power in all forms on our path toward housing and racial justice.
