After the 2020 elections, it is time to reflect on what funders can do to progress policy changes. This Roundtable webinar covers policy actions at both the federal and state levels and includes opportunities for funders to discuss with their peers the most effective ways to create policy and systems change.

During this interactive webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • What policy changes are possible at the federal and state levels and why
  • Basic needs, early childhood, and health policy
  • How policy change is likely to happen
  • Ways to fundamentally change systems so that kids are a priority, not an afterthought
  • Funder roles in policy and systems change
