Hilary Pennington, Executive Vice President of the Ford Foundation, and Sam Cobbs, CEO of Tipping Point Community, join with two of their current grantees —National Immigration Law Center Executive Director Marielena Hincapie and Homeless Prenatal Program Founder and Executive Director Martha Ryan— and explore how grantees can advocate for true power-sharing—in service of stronger, more equitable outcomes.
