Description: Just imagine the ACLU after the 2016 presidential election: A surge in online contributions. Thousands of folks want to volunteer. Increased interest from new philanthropic partners. Unprecedented and rapid growth. This belief in and need for the ACLU is both a privilege and responsibility. So how does an organization respond? How did the ACLU of Northern California recalibrate quickly and strategically? Respond to this volume of interest and support? Plan for long-term, sustainable engagement of supporters, new and stalwart alike? Use its own privilege and visibility to help other social justice organizations? Many of us have never experienced anything like this—the fight for justice fueled by unwavering engagement of people, heightened media attention, and countless opportunities for creative philanthropic partnership. Join the conversation with ACLU-NC leadership to hear what has changed and what hasn’t. Learn key takeaways and lessons learned thus far.
