“As nonprofit leaders, activists, and funders we are in unchartered waters. Even as we deal with how COVID-19 is impacting our own families and loved ones, we are called to contribute to a larger response: the response of our organizations, our movements, and of civil society at large.
NPQ, believes that how we shape our responses to COVID-19 has far greater implications than the successful containment of this particular and terrifying public health crisis, or even the survival of our individual institutions, though obviously both are critical. NPQ knows that public health is interconnected with every aspect of our society from access to health care, to financial security, to climate change. And, most fundamentally, to racial justice and the state of our democracy itself.
On Tuesday, March 24th, NPQ will assemble a panel of four thoughtful, provocative leaders to inspire thinking and stretch imaginations about how to frame the COVID-19 crisis and craft responses to it that are consistent with organizational, network, and movement values.”
