How do we drive significant positive change that addresses pressing social challenges in our community?

In order to effectively shift our social impact, we must shift our approaches to create change. The SHIFT Series convenes residents and leaders who are actively shifting their use of partnerships, tools, platforms, and power to achieve tangible results.

Hosted by GreenLight Fund Detroit and powered by Strategic Community Partners, the virtual event series approaches timely and relevant issues through a racial equity lens and demonstrates the powerful impact of a collaborative, community-minded process.

Each session features a panel of residents and leaders in our Greenight Fund Detroit network who are actively shifting their use of partnerships, tools, platforms, and power to dramatically shift their social impact – a significant positive change that addresses pressing social challenges. Audience members also have the opportunity to engage in the discussion through in-event polling and interactive question and answer sessions.

All sessions are free and open to all community members.

Tools for Dramatic Change: 
Using Data, Policy, and Voice to Fight Child Poverty 

Designing and implementing significant change for children facing poverty requires thorough and interconnected considerations of data, policy, and people’s voices. National legislation is being enacted to slash child poverty by almost half, city government has set priorities on intergenerational poverty, and local programs are pushing back against economic and racial inequity. Join our panelists to discuss how they’ve used multiple tools to influence federal, city, and neighborhood shifts that affect our most vulnerable populations.
