While social policy and advocacy groups have faced threats in the past, the frequency and the severity of attacks is likely to increase given the need for a win on taxes after failed efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. During this call you will: 

  • Learn more about the threat of opposition attacks leading up to the federal tax debates;
  • Gain a deeper understanding about the nature and impact of opposition attacks and how funders and grantees have responded in the past; and
  • Access resources and tools on how to anticipate and respond should further attacks occur.
Speakers:
  • Emily Goldfarb, Director, RoadMap
  • Molly Schultz Hafid, Assistant Director, Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock
  • Michael Laracy, Director, Policy Reform & Advocacy, The Annie E. Casey Foundation
