    May 22, 2020: How Will the Pandemic Change Healthcare Delivery?

    May 22, 2020: How Will the Pandemic Change Healthcare Delivery?

    The coronavirus pandemic has put unprecedented pressure on the American healthcare system. It also caused healthcare systems to rethink how to deliver care to patients not infected with the coronavirus. Long-held regulations around telemedicine services, professional licensing, and restrictions on healthcare workers relaxed. Despite these efforts, hospitals still lost millions of dollars in revenue as elective surgeries were canceled and patients, fearing they might contract the virus, skipped in-person treatments and routine screenings and appointments. This is a trend that is likely to continue -- according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, as many as 27 million Americans have lost employer-sponsored health insurance due to job loss during the crisis. What does all of this mean for the future of the healthcare delivery?

    May 20, 2020: Reopening and Reconnecting: Preparing for a New Normal

    May 20, 2020: Reopening and Reconnecting: Preparing for a New Normal

    All over the world, cities are beginning to re-open after months of sheltering in place…and facing a new reality. Retail stores, restaurants and bars, and office environments are grappling with new restrictions to keep people safe and prevent the spread of the coronavirus. In addition, many of the large public gatherings that bring people together as a community are postponed or canceled. These new realities are causing many to rethink and reimagine the way we construct and use physical space, and how we connect and convene a neighborhood and its residents. Here in Cleveland, there is conversation about potentially closing West 25th Street. How are other neighborhoods preparing for this new normal? What is being done to support neighborhood small businesses, restaurants, and cafes

    May 15, 2020: Return to the Statehouse: What Policy Priorities will Prevail?

    May 15, 2020: Return to the Statehouse: What Policy Priorities will Prevail?

    After sheltering in place for nearly two months, Ohioans -- and Ohio's economy -- are beginning to emerge and prepare for a new reality. The public health and economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus has had dramatic and far-reaching implications. In response, Republicans and Democrats have proposed dozens of bills covering everything from paid family leave to the sales tax that people pay on personal protective equipment to increasing COVID-19 testing and tracing. But the pandemic has cost Ohio's government about $1 billion in lost revenue, resulting in Governor DeWine's announcement of $775 million in budget cuts over the next two months. As Ohio lawmakers return to work for the first time since March 25, what policy responses will be prioritized?

    May 8, 2020: Coronavirus Challenge: Bridging Cleveland Education's Digital Divide

    May 8, 2020: Coronavirus Challenge: Bridging Cleveland Education's Digital Divide

    On April 20, Governor Mike DeWine announced that the Ohio Department of Health extended its order to keep schools closed for the rest of the school year in an attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. This followed an initial three-week spring break that extended into April. These announcements exposed the harsh reality of the region's digital divide

    May 5, 2020: Happy Dog Takes on the World: How Will Coronavirus Change the World?

    May 5, 2020: Happy Dog Takes on the World: How Will Coronavirus Change the World?

    The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted life across the globe, profoundly affecting supply chains, healthcare, and the economy. It's also exposed the harsh realities of racial, ethnic, economic, political, and health disparities the effects of which many countries have tried to minimize or ignore for decades.
    Now, as the pandemic slows before a probable second wave, global leaders and governments are weighing options and contemplating decisions that will define history and shape the world for years to come. What kind of world can we expect post-crisis? Will authoritarian regimes thrive or fail? What will become of the many conflicts in the Middle East? Perhaps, more importantly, what kind of world should we envision and work towards?
    Dr. Marshall and Dr. Hazburn serve on the Editorial Committee of Middle East Report, a quarterly publication that, since 1971, has provided critical, alternative reporting and analysis on the Middle East and American foreign policy. The forthcoming issue of the Middle East Report offers new visions and prescriptions for a progressive American foreign policy. They are joined by Milena Sterio, J.D., and moderator Tony Ganzer.

    May 1, 2020: Law Day: The 19th Amendment at 100

    May 1, 2020: Law Day: The 19th Amendment at 100

    President Dwight Eisenhower established the first Law Day in 1958 to mark the nation's commitment to the rule of law. The 2020 Law Day theme, Your Vote, Your Voice, Our Democracy: The 19th Amendment at 100, celebrates the ratification of the 19th amendment which gave women the right to vote. But, despite the 19th amendment, gaining the right to vote did not also grant equal access to voting. It was true decades ago when women of color where not able to vote in the Jim Crow South. And it's true today where rollbacks to early voting, voter purges, and strict voter photo ID laws often prevent minority communities and other politically vulnerable populations from voting. The coronavirus pandemic is amplifying these issues as the country ponders how and when to conduct an election during a public health crisis. Virginia Kase is CEO of the League of Women Voters, an organization founded by leaders of the women’s suffrage movement and dedicated to engaging in advocacy, legislation, litigation and organizing efforts centered around issues of voting rights and democracy reform.
