The Hill-Snowdon Foundation, in partnership with the General Service Foundation, is launching the Defending the Dream Fund to provide expedited resources to grassroots organizing groups that are working to protect targeted communities in the Trump era and defend the core principles of equity and justice.
In solidarity with the National Day of Action and Resistance, the Hill-Snowdon Foundation will close its office on May 1st, 2017 – May Day. The Majority is comprised of faith communities, unions, Movement for Black Lives, Mijente and other migrant rights organizations, climate justice groups, indigenous networks, and a spectrum of progressive allies that are coordinating efforts in over 100 cities on May 1st to stand up for justice and equity.
Given our office closure and the work that will be happening on the ground on May 1st, we are extending the deadline for our Defending the Dream Fund from May 1st to May 3rd.
The purpose of the The Good, the Bad and the Terrible webinar, was to help provide a landscape analysis of domestic policy changes and the impact on vulnerable and targeted communities in the Trump era. While the policy agenda is becoming clearer, there is still a lot of anxiety and uncertainty and it is our hope that this session will try to provide some insights into some of the major policy changes on the horizon, the current and potential impact the Trump era is having in communities, where are prospects for folks fighting back effectively and building power, and what are the most necessary things to do in this environment.
In order of their presentations we have:
