The Grantmakers Income Security Taskforce (GIST) invites you to attend The State of the States, a grantmakers briefing on October 28-29, 2013 in Washington, DC. Please join us for an opportunity to network with state and national funder colleagues and learn about and discuss developments in the states on issues facing families, workers, and communities and to strategize about policy, advocacy and communications learnings that can be applied across fields.
Sessions will include cross-cutting discussions around changing demographics, political dynamics, and emerging fiscal trends, and take a deep look at specific programs and policies that are getting traction including paid leave, unemployment insurance, minimum wage, wage theft, and ACA and Medicaid expansion.
This meeting is free of charge and open to foundation representatives and philanthropic advisors only. Click here to view a preliminary agenda.
As always, please feel free to share this invitation with other funders and philanthropic advisors who might be interested in attending.
