Toward Racial Equity: Forefront’s free 2021 Virtual Summit follow-up programs
Forefront invites you to join us for four, free virtual discussions in DecaturChicagoSpringfield, and Carbondale on how these sector leaders and communities have made progress in their work advancing racial equity and the possibilities of partnership between nonprofits and philanthropy.

Forefront President & CEO Monique B. Jones will moderate deeper conversations with each of the community leaders featured in Forefront’s June 2021 Virtual Summit. The interactive panels will tease out insights from these leaders on ways our own communities, organizations, and the wider Illinois social impact sector can learn valuable lessons to guide and apply in our own efforts and journeys. The conversations will take place monthly, from July-October 2021:
