Established in 2021, IECF’s Office of Policy & Engagement works to address inequities in the Inland Empire by creating greater policy capacity in the region. Through partnership with community-based organizations and collaboration with local changemakers, we’re amplifying the IE’s voice and influence on policymakers and the region’s major institutions.


Grassroots to grasstops
