Social Inequity and the Corona Crisis
The combined public health and economic crises have exposed – and magnified – social inequity in our societies. Social injustice and police brutality have led to widespread protests and unrest. From essential workers risking their lives on minimum wage to poor living conditions to inadequate access to health care and the digital world, we must right many existing wrongs in the United States and in Europe. Experts and practitioners Jutta Allmendinger and Bill Strickland will discuss how to heal and preserve the fabric of our communities.
This event is being held with support from the Thomas Mann House.
Prof. Dr. Jutta Allmendinger, President of the WZB Berlin Social Science Center and a Professor of Educational Sociology and Labor Market Research at Humboldt University
Bill Strickland, community leader and Founder and Executive Chairman of the non-profit Manchester Bidwell Corporation
