The Covid-19 Pandemic and Growing Inequality


Discussion Owner: Mallika

On Nov 11, the panel participated in a conversation illustrating how and why economic and social rights can be implemented during this tumultuous age.

This is a time for fundamental change within our economic systems and social structures, which leads to the question -- how can these inequities be best addressed?
