On the Road to Justice: Building Movements through Organizing Atlantic Philanthropies, Los Angeles Site Visit (July 14-16, 2009)
Event organized by PERE and the Liberty Hill Foundation in order to bring staff from the Atlantic Philanthropies to Los Angeles to expose them to organizing work and its importance in moving a social justice agenda, in order to inform Atlantic’s framework for social justice funding.
Goals of the trip were to have Atlantic understand:
- How organizing fits into broader movements and movement building and how this works to push specific policy wins within a broad ecosystem of change,
- How funding the organizing work of movement building groups fits into the world of philanthropy, and
- What a social justice and social movement funding framework specifically means with respect to grant making within Atlantic Philanthropies.
