COVID-19 has shown the urgent need for community partnerships and civic infrastructure, in order to ensure vaccine equity and stronger democratic foundations for healthy communities.
Join us on Friday, April 9 for a national strategy convening, on ways that we can collectively build better civic infrastructure—involving government agencies, community organizations, community media, and philanthropy.
This event is hosted by United Philanthropy Forum, in collaboration with Grantmakers In Health, Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation, Media Impact Funders, and the Census Legacies Project led by Center for Social Innovation at UC Riverside.
In preparation for the strategy convening, please fill out this brief survey about any vaccine outreach efforts you are aware of. You will also have the opportunity to nominate the initiative for recognition at our national strategy convening. https://forms.gle/t115e36zXZTdejWy7

The economic, health, and social destruction wrought by the pandemic has been considerable, with over half a million U.S. deaths and millions more facing detrimental health consequences. Many parts of the country are also struggling to mitigate steep disparities by race, immigrant status, disability, and more. These challenges underscore the need for even greater investments in government systems, public media, and civic infrastructure.
How can we use this opportunity to build a better civic infrastructure that can meet our modern-day needs for effective and equitable rapid response?
