Online Community Organizing and Coalition Leadership in a Pandemic

Leading in Extraordinary Times Webinar Series

Thanks to everyone who joined us on June 26th for the fifth installment of our Leading in Extraordinary Times webinar series. In this session, Paul Gauthier, Rebecca Pauls, Sharon Floyd and Sonia Théroux explored “Online Community Organizing and Coalition Leadership in a Pandemic.” This was a powerful conversation shedding light on the heightened inequities experienced by people with disabilities and marginalized groups at this time. Speakers also identified the racialized and gendered impact of the pandemic and shared examples of the creative and collaborative work they are doing to support and advocate for human rights and justice for all. We encourage you to amplify their voices and continue raising awareness by sharing the recording within your network.
