2017 Convening: Map -> Resist -> Support

From July 10th to 13th, funders will convene in New York to map challenges, share concrete tactics to resist, and chart a new course for support.

The Map section will set the stage by helping funders understand the regional trends, catalysts, and case studies of repressive societies. Resist will explore tactics used on the ground to open civic space. Support will delve deeper into grantmaking practice and philanthropic models that can support human rights movements in this evolving context. We will close by identifying future opportunities for collaboration.
