RSVP for Zoom Link
The Urban Democracy Lab invites you to join us for a webinar series between April 7 and 16, 2020, to discuss the ways in which our activist and scholarly partners are responding to the immediate needs of the precariously housed, laborers, and our immigrant neighbors in the midst of the current public health crisis. Just as importantly, we will talk about how this process of organizing and mutual aid is building widespread power to envision and act upon a shared, collective, more just future in our cities.
