Preventing violence in our homes: Meeting this moment with connection, care, and justice (Part 2)

Thursday, 30 April 2020

Children, youth, and families are experiencing intensified stresses and new traumas as our country and the entire world work to contain the novel coronavirus and save lives. At the same time, community members, practitioners, and advocates across the country are stepping up to prevent violence in homes and meet this moment with connection, care and an unwavering commitment to justice. This blog series shares specific examples of how groups are identifying and addressing community needs, connecting with different population groups and advocating with funders and policymakers in support of children, youth, and families. It is based on an April 14 and 17 PreventConnect web conference.

This second blog post of the series is about informing and advocating with funders and policymakers during this time of crisis. It spotlights Ujima’s policy efforts to support Black women and the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health’s guidance on strategic partnerships between philanthropy and grantees to best support families and communities.
