Activating Vision, Voice and Values for this Moment

Session Leader
David Bradley
Co-Founder, LiveConnections

Drawing on the imagery of the iconic American “front porch” as a unique gathering place where neighbors come together to discuss important issues in their community, we will together dive into a deeper discussion about the themes introduced by the morning speakers. We are collectively wrestling with times that call on both philanthropies and non-profits to respond with new investments and new strategies. In this town hall-style session, we will have the chance to share examples of new approaches and ask questions of the speakers (and each other) about how our actions in this moment can best embody the values we articulate.

11:30 AM -

Attendees pick up their boxed lunches and move into the workshop sessions.
