Panel Description

Session Description:

In March Americans across the U.S. began sheltering in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As we all struggled with this major disruption to our daily lives, some of us were impacted in much more severe ways than others whether that be disparate health outcomes, poverty, joblessness or other core issues. While our lives were on seemingly on pause, millions witnessed the killing of George Floyd on May 25th which sparked cries for justice, national and international protests and deeper conversations about our rights as American citizens, specifically as it relates to the 4th & 14th amendments. However, as citizens we have a voice and can be the change we wish to see in our communities. Join us as we explore each of these issues.
