California has recently accelerated its vaccine distribution plan. While the vaccine rollout is in full swing, new challenges and inequities have surfaced in its community outreach, engagement, and the vaccine process. How should philanthropy use its collective power to respond to this crisis and provide support to public and community partners? What can we expect in 2021 as communities of color continue to face disproportionate health disparities and economic consequences? We invite you to join this briefing to hear from leading experts on what you and your foundations can do during this critical stage in our history to control the COVID-19 pandemic.
