The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been felt all over the world, from business closures and job losses to overburdened public health systems and the death of loved ones. Here in the United States, the harm to immigrant communities has been acute. Numbering 44.7 million—nearly one in seven Americans—immigrants of all statuses have experienced a disproportionate impact, like other marginalized communities. On this webinar, participants heard from leaders in the immigrant rights movement about how philanthropy can increase grantmaking dollars, shift grantmaking practices, embrace risk, and assert leadership to meet the challenges of this moment. Speakers included Lucas Benitez and Julia Perkins of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Wendy Cervantes of the Center for Law and Social Policy, and Wayne Ho of the Chinese American Planning Council.
