Event Details

Dear Friends & Allies,


We are excited to invite you to our 3rd annual What Works! Convening. The Mitchell Kapor Foundation is committed to creating meaningful spaces for our grant recipients, their community partners, and membership to meet, build relationships, and hear about what has worked in their efforts to build power in poor communities of color and understand.  What Works! is the annual manifestation of this commitment.


This two-day convening will bring together organizations from across the country working at the cross section of race, civic engagement, and criminalization.  As the national conversation about race lends itself to reactionary, exclusive, and xenophobic, we believe this is a critical opportunity to bring together organizers from places ranging from Oakland, New York, New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago and Miami to deepen their relationships and build a meaningful network of support for our collective well-being.


The aim of this convening is to inform a cross-race and cross-sector national agenda to build political and economic power with poor people and people of color.  Panels include presenters working on issues ranging from youth organizing highlighting work in the Bay Area and New York; worker organizing focusing on organizing Black workers in the mid-west, immigrant workers nationally, and cross racial organizing in San Francisco; and a panel rethinking issues of civic engagement to include long-term engagement embedded within a community organizing framework showcasing the relationship between Oakland and Albuquerque.   We are also very excited to have Angela Davis, scholar, life-long activist, and co-founder of Critical Resistance as our opening speaker.  A complete speaker list and agenda is attached and available on the registration page.


We are very excited to be hosting convening this convening in partnership with the Ford Foundation, Solidago Foundation, and Surdna Foundation. 


This year the convening will be held at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley on November 8th & 9th, 2010.  To register, please click HERE.  This convening is open to staff and membership of community based organizations, foundation staff, students, academics, and the interested general public.  Students will be required to bring a Student ID and non-Mitchell Kapor Foundation, Ford, Surdna, and Solidago grant recipient organizations will
