The panelists are:

The panelists and host David Price will be discussing the layers of justice embedded in the pandemic and their impacts.

  • Does the blindfold on the well-known scale-holding statue of justice represent an unwillingness to judge inequities or impartiality?
  • How might we consider social inequalities during the pandemic?
  • And justice…which justice? Whose justice? 

The program airs Friday morning, 6/12/20, live on Facebook Live and as a Zoom webinar beginning at 10:00.
 
Hope to see you there!
