Here at Appleseed, we believe the first step to meaningful systemic change is to bring an array of diverse stakeholders together to discuss social justice issues and develop sustainable solutions. As a thought leader and resource distributor, we understand the importance of bringing experts together, sharing bold ideas, and taking action for change.
It was in this spirit that Appleseed recently co-hosted our first Bold Idea Symposium at the Ford Foundation for Social Justice in New York City alongside Princeton AlumniCorps. There, we discussed a variety of immigration and forced migration issues, as well as how to effectuate real change through networks and coalitions. The event was part of a broader project with Princeton AlumniCorps, funded by a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation secured thanks to the efforts of Ralph Nader, a founder of both organizations.
