    Pandemic Phase: Back to "normal"

    Pandemic Phase: Back to "normal"

    We’ve been collectively traumatized by the events of the last 15 months. Now that COVID cases are dropping and vaccinations are out, restrictions are being lifted, and people are excited to get back to their “normal” life again. But what does that look like? How will we get there? And how will we make sure we’re bringing everyone with us into a more aware, safe, and inclusive world? 

    Join us to hear our perspectives on what the new "normal" will look like to each of us, and how we think we might get there without damaging relationships.
