Webinar Series on COVID-19 and Social Justice Issues

Friday, May 15th, 2020

(United Methodist Church — Church and Society)

  • May 21: Systemic Racism and Discrimination during COVID-19
  • May 28: Confined and Vulnerable: Detained and Incarcerated during COVID-19

  • June 18: Imagining a Just Economy post COVID-19
