SIS @ UNGA | Exploring Philanthropy’s Role in a Democratic Society


• Pamela Norley, President – Fidelity Charitable
• Melody Barnes, Former Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council; Co-Director for Policy & Public Affairs – UVA Democracy Initiative
• Steven Olikara, Founder & CEO – Millennial Action Project
• Joe Goldman, President – Democracy Fund

In partnership with Fidelity Charitable, this virtual event will welcome an audience of philanthropists, foundation leaders, corporate executives, and innovators for an informative discussion on enhancing the democratic process, especially as the 2020 presidential election approaches.

The goal of the event is to learn about issues facing our democracy and gain an understanding of the diverse ecosystem of initiatives, organizing groups, nonpartisan programs, and others working to address them. It will explore some of the innovative approaches both individual and institutional funders are taking to ensure a healthy, well-functioning democracy.
