Seventy percent of the country believes that redistribution of wealth should be part of our tax and social policy. While we should support these policies, we needn’t wait to act on the local level. Join us to hear strategies for developing a donor base, coordinating direct giving and demonstrating how everyday people with an internet connection can help provide for their communities on small and large scales. The panelists will share how they have fed thousands, housed hundreds, bailed out many and continue to use their voices and platforms to help the most marginalized.
