Centering Black Community Voices in Pandemic Response – Regional and National Approaches

Join a conversation about how two community foundations stepped up to respond to the Pandemic. Early in the Pandemic, the Community Foundation of Greater Flint convened the Greater Flint Coronavirus Taskforce on Racial Inequities building on the lessons of the Flint water crisis. The East Bay Community Foundation stepped up as the philanthropic partner and convener for the COVID-19 African American Education and Outreach Partnership, a national demonstration project. The foundations’ CEOs will kick off this learning exchange and be joined by public health experts, faith and civic leaders from the South, Oakland, CA and Flint, MI. The discussion will amplify racially equitable philanthropic practices that address structural and institutional change.
