Integrating Environmental Justice and Philanthropy: Lessons and Opportunities

May 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

As the climate crisis escalates, it becomes increasingly apparent that philanthropic efforts must extend beyond traditional climate funding models to embrace a more equitable approach. In this panel discussion, part of the outreach for Forging Climate Solutions: How to Accelerate Action Across America, environmental justice organizations nationwide will unite with grantmakers who fund justice-focused climate action. Together, they will analyze how a justice-centered approach addresses the disproportionate impact of climate change on marginalized communities and enhances the effectiveness and long-term impact of philanthropic investments.

Training will follow for philanthropies that wish to learn more about best practices for including justice in their grantmaking strategies.
