The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented. We are dealing with a lot of unknowns. But one thing is clear: now more than ever, the ability to know, use, and shape the law is critical. Containment measures are placing vulnerable communities at even greater risk, and emergency actions are being used to undermine democratic protections.
This is a time to lean on and learn from each other. Let us support each other in these turbulent times. Use this space to post questions and suggestions for adapting our work during the pandemic. No idea is too small. Every thought may help another person to overcome a challenge that is preventing them from supporting communities in need.
Thank you for joining us, and may you all stay safe and healthy.
