Registration for the SAFSF Annual Policy Briefing is limited to funders only. Funders are defined as organizations using grantmaking or investments as a core strategy to fulfill their mission and who make grants or invest more than $50,000 annually. This includes individual donors, executive and program staff, and members of the board of grantmaking organizations (family foundations, individual donors, corporate foundations, government, community foundations, etc.), as well as representatives of non-profit or for-profit investment enterprises. Development or fundraising staff are not permitted to participate in SAFSF events. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The only exceptions to this rule are for invited speakers and Food System Partners. Those invited to speak at the Forum and member organizations permitted to invite a Food System Partner received emails with detailed registration instructions. If you did not receive that email or have questions, please contact email@example.com.
POLICY BRIEFING THEME
From coast to coast, citizens are raising their voices and advocating for their values through unprecedented civic engagement. Funders are activating their networks and resources to cultivate relationships and pursue equitable and sustainable outcomes in the food system. While there is an urgency to many of the issues at hand, the importance of supporting ongoing efforts has never been more clear. Long-term impact demands creativity, agility, courage, persuasive messaging, and proactive policy engagement.
The 4th Annual SAFSF Policy Briefing returns to Washington, DC, a city where power and privilege coexist alongside significantly marginalized communities, disproportionately comprised of people of color who are at a political, social, and economic disadvantage. The 2017 Policy Briefing, Power in Action, will share stories from frontline communities that are harnessing their collective power; provide insights from individuals working within existing structures of political power; and examine funders’ responsibility to generate equitable outcomes. Join us in the capital city this December to build connections, align strategies, and transform power into action.
