Who Voted and Why and Implications for Social and Economic Policy — A Conversation with Public Opinion and Political Strategists
December 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CT
Assessing the environment in the aftermath of the elections and identifying windows of opportunity to work strategically and collaboratively is essential to advancing the work of philanthropy and improving the lives of low-income families, workers and communities. For more than a decade, EOF has hosted post-election briefings in partnership with fellow philanthropy serving organizations to help funders better understand the outcomes of the national and state elections and what it suggests in terms of opportunities and challenges for the short-and medium-term.
Join us for the first program in our post-election virtual funder learning series. In this two-part program, public opinion and political strategists and national and state organizers will explore what the recent elections tell us about political participation, dialogue on the direction of the country, and the future of social and economic policy.
Hosted by EOF in partnership with:
