    Despite all the programs and structures designed to prevent and end homelessness and because of historical and contemporary structural racism, people of color disproportionately experience homelessness. To truly end homelessness, we must change the systems that perpetuate racial inequity. Doing so is not an easy or quick task, but together, we can take steps to educate ourselves and use our voices to push the field toward greater racial equity.    

    To address this, Funders Together to End Homelessness is launching a two-year community of practice called Foundations for Racial Equity to help funders move the needle toward greater racial equity in homelessness and housing. From 2019-2020, we will convene philanthropic leaders working at national and local levels to build relationships with other funders, learn together about systemic racism in housing and homelessness, and lead the field in creating a more equitable world. 

    To hear about what this two-year community of practice will learn and achieve together, please join us for an informational webinar on October 19 at 1:00 pm Eastern / 10:00 am Pacific. The webinar recording will be posted on the Foundations for Racial Equity overview page afterwards for those who are unable to make the webinar live.

    Full details about Foundations for Racial Equity can be found here.

  • rsvped for Webinar: SPARC Phase One Study Findings 2018-09-19 13:51:20 -0400

    Webinar: SPARC Phase One Study Findings

    People of color are dramatically more likely than White people to experience homelessness in the United States. Addressing racial inequities in homelessness means fundamentally changing the conversation we are having about the root causes of housing instability, risk for homelessness, barriers to exiting homelessness, and access to housing, community supports, and opportunities for economic mobility for people of color.  

    In March 2018, SPARC (Supporting Partnerships for Anti-Racist Communities) released findings from the first phase of their work to understand and respond to racial inequities in homelessness. During this webinar, Marc Dones and Jeff Olivet will provide an overview of these findings and share what they mean for the field of homelessness.  

    Join us for this webinar, which will help kick off and provide grounding for a suite of racial equity programming from Funders Together.

    Please note: This webinar is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations. If you have questions about participating, please contact Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs, at stephanie@FundersTogether.org
