To understand these inequalities, SIETAR DC will be facilitating a panel on “Social Justice in the time of COVID” on May 27 at 5:30pm. The panel will consist of practitioners who will share their experiences and discuss a variety of topics such as how to be allies to marginalized communities; practicing respect, inclusivity and empathy in virtual spaces; the heightened digital divide during the pandemic and practical ideas as to action steps you can take.
