Regional Meeting

Each year, SVCF hosts a Regional Meeting event to bring together the community to address pressing regional issues.

SVCF's 2017 Regional Meeting
Protecting and Upholding the Civil Rights of all People
Oct. 12, 2017

The 2017 event featured Anthony Romero from the American Civil Liberties Union and Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League. 

In our ever-changing national environment, there are mounting concerns regarding the rights of immigrants and refugees, the spike in hate crimes against Jewish people and Muslims, women's reproductive rights, and the rights of the LGBTQ community. Our speakers discussed these issues and addressed how the civil rights of all people can be protected and upheld.

In addition, SVCF's Chief Community Impact Officer Erica Wood announced our plans for the future of our strategic grantmaking. For more than a year, SVCF has been conducting a review of our grantmaking strategies, to ensure they continue to address our community's most pressing issues. 

SVCF's CEO closed the event by reflecting on SVCF's 10th anniversary and looked ahead to the future.
