Thinking About Our Post-Pandemic World
May 28, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The League of Women Voters of Diablo Valley, 350 Contra Costa and the Contra Costa County Library invite you to a special webinar, Thinking About Our Post-Pandemic World: Ensuring a Just Recovery for Contra Costa County. This panel discussion will take place Thursday, May 28 from 3:00-4:00 via Zoom. See login instructions below.
The COVID-19 pandemic and related economic crisis are unfolding as our country continues to face a deepening climate emergency and extreme inequality that this moment lays bare. While we face the immediate crisis of dealing with COVID-19 in our lives and communities, we also need to be thinking of answers to questions on the longer-term challenges, such as:
■ How can local communities in Contra Costa prepare and support a recovery that accelerates moving toward a healthier, more equitable and clean-energy future?
■ How do we ensure that the communities most vulnerable and impacted by COVID-19 participate in and are a key part of the recovery?
■ What can we do, as leaders and community members, to support transformative solutions to our social, environmental and economic challenges?
