Georgetown to Host Forum on Race and Role of Philanthropy in Shaping Public Policy
WHO:

Gara LaMarche, President and CEO of The Atlantic Philanthropies (Keynote)

Panelists:

  • Terri Lee Freeman, President of The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region
  • Clarissa Martinez De Castro, the Director of Immigration and National Campaigns at the National Council of La Raza
  • Bill Schambra, Director of the Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal at the Hudson Institute

Mark Lloyd, Georgetown Public Policy Institute affiliate professor and Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (Moderator)

WHAT:

Community, nonprofit and philanthropic leaders will reflect on issues of race and determine what philanthropic strategies may be most effective in addressing those issues in a discussion titled, "Taking Account of Race: A Philanthropic Imperative." The event, hosted by the Center for Public and Nonprofit Leadership at the Georgetown Public Policy Institute, is the inaugural forum in the 2008-2009 Waldemar A. Nielsen Issue Forums in Philanthropy: The Role of Philanthropy in Shaping Public Policy.

The Nielsen issue forums have been organized to create a public dialogue on philanthropy’s impact in the policy arena, capture critical elements to systemic change and identify gaps for future public policy impact. The subsequent forums will examine how foundations have taken deliberate steps to shape public policy on current, critical issues -- social justice for children, public education reform and the global fight against HIV/AIDS.
