In the past few months, COVID-19 and the global movement for racial justice have laid bare inequities in the U.S. and globally, and shown how these inequities undermine the very foundations of our social, political, and economic systems. In this third webinar of a series on issues related to the Sustainable Development Goals, a panel of publicly-engaged scholars explored how various forms of inequality in the United States threaten community resilience and sustainable change in their areas of work and then discuss how we all can work together across sectors and disciplines to undermine systemic inequities toward positive change.
