"This online Public Dialogue will examine the global dimensions of the coronavirus crisis that are so often neglected in our focus on the pandemic’s impact on the United States. How is COVID-19—with its deadly health consequences and awful economic costs—affecting the rest of the world? What are U.S. responsibilities to the poorest places and people as the pandemic moves across the globe? The Initiative is bringing together Pope Francis’ designated leader on the crisis, the longtime leader of Bread for the World, and a leader on the front lines in Africa to explore the human and moral dimensions of the crisis as it spreads to even more of the poor and vulnerable around the world."
The dialogue will feature:
Cardinal Peter Turkson, Prefect for the Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development
David Beckmann, President of Bread for the World
Haydee Diaz, CRS Uganda Program Director
John Carr, Director of Georgetown University's Initiative for Catholic Social Thought in Public Life
