Innovation in the Time of Covid-19



Wednesday, May 6th

10AM – 1PM PST,
12PM – 3pm CST

This 3-hour session will explore innovative opportunity for community good in this time of social distancing.  There will be stories of national responses, space for idea generation, and resources shared.  Our work is to centralize the leadership that represent the communities most impacted.  Black and brown people are disproportionately negatively impacted both medically and economically.  We need creative, collaborative, and liberative responses that build power and capacity in equitable ways.  Come be inspired and resourced.
