NCFP: The Future of Family Philanthropy — Positioning Families for Greatness

Thursday, December 10, 2020
9:00am - 10:15am

Philanthropic families are expanding their impact, knowledge of the field, and becoming increasingly sophisticated in their giving. There is further demand for philanthropic guidance and resources as donors and their families leverage multiple philanthropic vehicles, engage the next generation, and look to increase their payout rates or even spend down. NCFP President and CEO Nick Tedesco has spent the last year on a listening tour connecting with giving families and listening to their needs and suggestions for the field. Join Nick and NCFP board members as they share reflections, discuss the future direction of the field and how we can position our community of giving families for even greater success in the years to come.

Our Freedoms are Tied Together: Incarceration & Immigration in California

Tuesday, October 6, 2020
12:00pm - 1:30pm

Each year, thousands of noncitizens are released from state prisons and jails, often immediately detained by ICE where they face deportation, a process that the Governor and County Sheriffs have the direct power to halt. This is one of the countless connections between local and state incarceration and the criminalization, detention, and deportation of immigrants. In order to better understand these connections and how they further mass criminalization, we must adopt a power analysis and intersectional framework that exposes the deep and insidious ways these systems reinforce and build off one another.

In this webinar, our speakers will provide an overview of the organizing happening at the intersections of criminal justice, immigrant rights, and prison abolition in California. We will hear directly from people who have survived both state prison and ICE detention, as well as grassroots organizers who are leading individual freedom campaigns, and local fights against the repurposing of empty jail beds to expand immigration detention and local jail fights that involve intersections between mass incarceration and immigrant detention. This webinar is designed to support philanthropists to deepen their analysis of racial justice, power, and intersectionality as a way to support this critical community defense work that demonstrates just how intimately our freedoms are tied together.

NCFP Webinar: Trust-based Family Philanthropy

Tuesday, October 6, 2020
9:00am - 10:15am

Trust-based philanthropy is being embraced by a growing number of family foundations as a way to alleviate power imbalances between funders and grantees while fostering more productive and informative relationships. Driven by the central philosophy that funders should approach grantee relationships as learning partnerships, a trust-based approach encourages multi-year unrestricted funding, streamlined reporting, and transparent and responsive communication. In this session, participants will hear from leaders of family foundations that have embraced trust-based approaches, how these practices align with each family's legacy and values, and what it looks like when foundation CEOs and family trustees collaborate to build a culture of trust. Participants will learn about how foundations and grantees both benefit from a trust-based approach, and will have a chance to consider some practical next steps to build more productive and balanced funder-grantee relationships.

Transit Justice is Racial and Climate Justice

Thursday, October 1, 2020
10:00am - 11:30am

Join Smart Growth California’s Los Angeles Funders Collaborative, the Collaborative on Mobility and Access at TFN, Southern California Grantmakers, ClimatePlan, Transit Center, ACT-LA, Koreatown Immigrant Workers Alliance and the Community Power Collective for a conversation about transit justice in Los Angeles and its state and national implications.

Despite LA County’s car-centric reputation, over a million Angelenos do not have cars, and this is particularly true in LA’s Black and immigrant communities. Public transit is the community infrastructure that connects us to jobs, family, and healthcare. LA County is by far the most populated County in the US; it is critical to maintain and grow our transit ridership in order to address climate change and improve air quality.

However, public transit in LA County is often unreliable, slow, poorly connected and overpoliced. It burdens the pocketbooks of the extremely low income families that rely on it. ACT-LA, a countywide coalition working on transit issues believes that LA Metro as an agency has long prioritized the wrong budget items; funding major train projects over the much more utilized bus system, maintaining an extensive fare enforcement system and committing almost a billion dollars for policing.

Community organizers in LA are building a movement for transit justice in order to make the County’s development of public transportation a pathway to a just transition rather than a source of displacement and further inequity. This convening invites dialogue about the multi-sector nature of this issue, successes and challenges at the state and regional level and where we go from here.


Moderator

David Bragdon

Executive Director, TransitCenter

David has been at the helm of TransitCenter since 2013, leading its reinvention as a civic philanthropy. He assembled the crew and sets direction for the foundation’s mission to improve urban transportation.

He’s a reformer by nature, who’s led change and organizational improvement in both the public and private sectors. He spent the early part of his career as a maritime and aviation freight dog, and was then elected to two terms as President of the Metro Council, the regional government for the Portland, Oregon area. He drove a taxi cab for a year, jump-seated a 747 freighter into the then-USSR, rode a Dutch container ship up the Strait of Malacca, and twice (once for two minutes in Minnesota and once for five minutes in Iowa) has been allowed to run the engineer’s throttle on a freight train, so he knows how to move big things.

Speakers

Chanell Fletcher

Executive Director, ClimatePlan

As the Executive Director of ClimatePlan, Chanell oversees network partners and staff efforts’ on state and regional policy to help California communities become more healthy, equitable, and sustainable. Chanell has over 10 years of experience working on policy issues related to climate change, land use, and transportation.

Chanell began her career as an intern in the Office of the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, analyzing the federal transportation bill, MAP-21, connecting it to states’ performance and funding needs. Chanell received her Master's degree in Public Administration from San Francisco State University and studied history at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Carla De Paz

Community Power Collective

Carla De Paz is the daughter of an immigrant single mother from Guatemala that found herself planting roots in Lynwood, CA. She had a humble but joyful upbringing, raised in a household with extended and chosen family who instilled a strong sense of responsibility, community, and lots of dancing. Her passion for organizing flourished in college while volunteering for IDEPSCA at multiple day laborer sites. After graduating with a BA in Political Science and Labor & Workplace Studies from UCLA in 2010, she started organizing nursing homeworkers with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). While at SEIU, she organized over 500 workers to win union representation through National Labor Board Relations elections.

Carla became more interested in land use and housing issues after her family lost their home during the foreclosure crisis. In 2013, she started organizing with the East LA Community Corporation and over a 7 year period she led multiple high profile efforts including the base building work for the Los Angeles Street Vendor Campaign which won the legalization of street vending in 2019 and securing affordable housing and green space on all Metro-owned land in Boyle Heights. She also played a big part in shaping ELACC’s political orientation towards transformative organizing and movement building, making ELACC a prominent player within the housing justice movement ecosystem.

Unfortunately, after suffering a financial crisis that was amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization was no longer able to sustain its organizing programs. In April of 2020, Carla made the decision to lead the separation of ELACC’s organizing work into a new entity, the Community Power Collective (CPC), and now leads CPC’s operations, advocacy and coalition work. She chairs the Organizing Committees for the Alliance for Community Transit (ACT-LA), the Healthy LA Coalition, and is on the steering committee for Homes For All California.

Carla’s lived experience and learnings in the 12 years of organizing have solidified her identity as a social movement leftist and she hopes to continue building her skill sets as a strategist within CPC and to strengthen CPC’s role as a tool for winning housing and land use justice in Los Angeles. Carla enjoys reading poetry about radical free love, she enjoys summer day dancing to reggaeton, and enjoys Sundays by herself with her plants.
