Are our workplaces or unemployment offices or home offices or schools or universities open? Maybe? Sometimes? Are you still grabbing as much toilet paper as you can fit in your home? Is your speaker on mute? How many face masks do you own? It is only 101 more days (who’s counting??) until the end of 2020 and hopefully, by then we will have Covid-19 treatments available for all to get well and stay healthy. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and in good health.
Covid-19 has changed so many things this election year. This Thursday night, we continue our “What’s Your Lane?” series by exploring how advocacy has shifted due to Covid-19. This chat will explore both online and offline advocacy methods. We will also explore populations that are especially at-risk during Covid-19 and how to advocate with them. Our guest expert will be one of my dearest mentors, John McNutt, PhD, MSW, Professor at the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. School of Public Policy and Administration, University of Delaware.
You can preview the chat at our podcast!
