Post-Election Briefing for Grantmakers
Hosted by the Economic Opportunity Funders (formerly Grantmakers Income Security Taskforce) in partnership with the Asset Funders Network, Early Childhood Funders Collaborative, Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation, Neighborhood Funders Group’s Funders for a Just Economy, and Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees.
In November 2018, the whole House of Representatives, a third of the Senate, 36 governorships, and many state legislature seats were up for election. The results of this year’s midterm elections will have an enormous impact in shaping the political landscape for years to come. Assessing the new policy and funding environment will be critical as we build compelling and successful agendas for advancing our work to support struggling families, workers and communities.
This post-election briefing for funders featured discussions on:
- The 2018 American electorate (who voted and why);
- How the election outcomes will impact opportunities and challenges facing
families, workers and communities across the nation; and
- What the results mean for our work and emerging opportunities for
alignment and collective action.
