Save the Date: Global Rights Summit 2020
December 7-11, 2020
Location to be announced
The Global Philanthropy Project and co-sponsoring partners will coordinate a Global Rights Summit from December 7-11 2020, location to be announced, focused on grantmaker responses to “anti-gender ideology.” This will be an opportunity for grantmakers across multiple fields and key organizations working on these issues to convene for reporting on activities and outcomes, and shared strategizing for the next phase of development. Please sign up here to receive updates and more information.
This convening will provide an opportunity for grantmakers to develop shared analysis, strategy, and collaboration across multiple interconnected grantmaking issue areas including (but not limited to):
- Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression, and Sex Characteristics (SOGIESC)
- Sexual Health and Reproductive Rights (SHRR)
- Closing Space/Defending Open Space
- Environmental and Climate Crisis Issues
- Refugee and Asylum Issues
- Rights of Children and Youth
Within this multi-day meeting, grantmakers and representatives of key grantee organizations will convene for co-learning, shared strategizing, and identification of action steps across multiple thematic tracks. The convening will also include a section we are describing as “regional institutes,” providing grantmakers with an opportunity to apply thematic analysis to practical, localized strategies within geographic regions. Additionally, the convening will include time for self-organized sessions and for membership meetings of the co-sponsoring networks.

The convening will also be developed by an Advisory Committee.
