Join us to explore the intersection of philanthropy, climate change and immigration.
Led by M.S. Nonprofit Management Lecturer Erwin de Leon, PhD, three experts will discuss the impacts climate change and immigration have on each other and our world, the challenges they create and opportunities for philanthropy to promote equity, health and dignity.
Additionally, they will talk about cross-movement work, entry points for funders, and the importance of collaboration.
