The scope of the societal impacts being both inflicted and uncovered by the COVID-19 pandemic are truly without precedent. With every disaster, whether it's an economic collapse or the damage inflicted by a hurricane or wildfire, we are given a choice: rebuild in the same pattern as before or re-imagine a different future. If a peaceful, compassionate, equitable and sustainable future is our goal, then we must ensure that our path forward doesn’t rebuild the systems of violence, inequality, racism and pollution that are corroding our society from the inside out. We talk with Dr Manuel Pastor, the University of Southern California Distinguished Professor of Sociology, American Studies & Ethnicity, about advancing a vision for a post-covid society through bold, big steps.
