Join GRI Co-Director – Dr Daniel Aldrich – on November 10 to understand the importance of social ties and mutual aid as we face the Great Unravelling.
About the Event:
Across the globe and near to home, communities find themselves more and more challenged, as they grapple with climate-driven natural disasters, growing houselessness and hunger, the high prices of energy and other essential needs, heightened political tensions, and the lingering impacts of the pandemic.
As we more fully enter an era where converging crises are the norm, the strength of our social ties and our communities’ ability to come together may make all the difference in how well we prepare, respond, and recover.
Join us for this free two-part online event where we will explore:
- What kinds of disasters and challenges we should anticipate in this Age of Crisis;
- Why social ties are so crucial in determining how well our families and communities fare;
- Where mutual aid and other forms of solidarity have transformed the fate of communities across the US and abroad; and
- How you can help build social ties and mutual aid networks in your own community.
