Friday "Better Normal" discussions are typically held from noon-1:00, however, on Friday May 8 join us from 1:00 pm -2:00 pm PT (2 pm MT, 3 pm CT, 4 pm ET) to chat with Kanwarpal Dhaliwal, Associate Director of RYSE Youth Center. RYSE is at the center of powerful work to build "better normal" right now, as equity gaps glare, and while the political will to address these gaps has blown wide open.
On Friday's call, we will examine the question, how can systems transformation be a legacy of Covid19? Kanwarpal will describe the cross sector emergency pandemic response community initiative called WCC Covid Community Care; how it started; and what it has already accomplished.
Covid Community Care centers in its response, a focus on the "adverse community experiences" that are always present, and have been exacerbated in a crisis like the Covid19 pandemic.
Best of all, Covid Community Care is a real life, on the ground model that demonstrates what socially just, trauma aware, community driven public health policy in action looks like.
