"The COVID 19 pandemic has caused shifts in the way we organize and advocate for systems and policy change. To protect our collective health while meeting the urgency of the moment, we have had to adjust our strategies and tactics to mobilize our communities and bring both new and long-standing demands to institutions of power. Across issue areas and geographies, the unrelenting uncertainty and peril took a toll on our bodies, spirits and relationships — and also made space for new ideas that can make our movements more creative, inclusive and accessible.
As we continue to navigate the ongoing pandemic, what challenges have we faced and what opportunities have we embraced? At our April 2022 Actualizing Equity event we were joined by organizers who shared their insights, experiences and ideas." – The Alliance
