Announcing Partnership Deep Dives
The White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships seeks to better serve people in need through partnerships with civil society. To that end, we are launching a series of “Partnerships Deep Dives” webinars that will explore a specific pressing challenge in-depth, and ways partnerships can address such challenges.
The first Partnerships Deep Dive webinar will focus on Safety, Security and Partnership Engagement with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. This one-hour online event will showcase multiple ways for faith and neighborhood organizations to enhance the safety and security of their institutions and communities by partnering with the Department of Homeland Security, which includes the Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA.
Join the White House Partnerships Office and DHS/FEMA Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships on October 19 at 2 pm ET to learn more. Register here.
