GCIR’s biennial national convening is the foremost gathering in philanthropy on immigrant and refugee issues. The convening brings together the sector’s leading voices and advocates with the aim of giving funders new tools and renewed enthusiasm to guide their immigrant- and refugee-related grantmaking.
The 2020 Convening will take place against the backdrop of a dramatic shift in our nation’s vision of immigration and democracy, and during the lead-up to one of the most consequential elections in our lifetimes. The theme, Courage, Vision, Action, reflects the grave imperatives facing philanthropy amid deep divisions over what we value and who we are as a nation. The programming will inspire us all to imagine our shared future and push beyond business as usual to take action in this defining moment.
Come and meet peers from around the country, hear about critical work happening in the South, and learn how philanthropy can advance a bold new vision for America.
