Pandemic as Portal is a nine-week series featuring visionary thinkers who are imagining the world anew as it reconfigures in the midst of the pandemic. Each speaker will explore their highest vision of environmental and social justice, think about the crucial steps we can take as individuals and communities to bring that vision to life, and share stories of how this new paradigm is already taking shape.

The series will be broadcast live on Zoom Tuesdays at 6 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. EST from January 12 to March 9. Upcoming speakers include Erin Moore, J. Drew Lanham, Mazin Jamal, KJ Song, Michael Paul Nelson, Elizabeth Sawin, Bathsheba Demuth, Nia E. Martin-Robinson, and Vanessa Raditz.
