Between obsession with Trump gaffes and concerns about COVID-19 within our country, our attention as a nation and party has turned inward. You are invited to take join us and take time to look beyond our borders.
We are fortunate to have Susan Romanski, Mercy Corps Senior Director of Humanitarian Capacity Building and Global Engagement. talk with us and answer questions about Mercy Corps' response to COVID-19 throughout the world. Susan is a longtime Mercy Corps team member with expertise in emergency response. For those not familiar with Mercy Corps, it is a Portland based global team of humanitarians that served 29 million people in 2019 in over 40 countries, our nation and our city. To quote from their website:
COVID-19 has spread to more than 198 countries and is now reaching communities most vulnerable to the health and economic impacts of its spread. People fleeing conflict, living in poverty or without access to healthcare face the greatest risk. From Craig Redmond, our Senior Vice President of Programs: “In many areas not yet informed through radio, television or the internet, Mercy Corps teams are the first to reach communities with critical health and safety information.”
We wil also take a look at the results of the recent primary and share any announcements of happenings of current interest.
Please join us online. All are welcome.
