On this episode of the Give podcast, host Shannon Maganzein welcomes two members of the Annie E Casey Foundation to let us know a little about the work that they do.  The Annie E. Casey Foundation is a private philanthropy foundation that creates a brighter future for the nation’s children by developing solutions to strengthen families, build paths to economic opportunity and transform struggling communities into safer and healthier places to live, work and grow.

Today we are speaking with Amoretta Morris who is the director of national community strategies for the Annie E. Casey Foundation. She lives in Washington DC, and she leads the foundation’s national community change strategies. She has more than a decade of experience shaping policies and programs to improve the lives of youth and families.

As a foundation, they also are ones that are really committed to racial equity, and in this moment,  the country has embraced many challenging conversations. Some of these are about how to bring equity to communities, and what it looks like to be able to do the work differently and approach issues differently for everyone. They seek to look at everything that we do with an equity lens.
