Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs
A joint JLI – WFDD – Berkley Center Initiative on COVID-19
How people experience the COVID-19 emergency varies in different settings. This webinar focused on Mexico and the pandemic’s intersection with the long-standing crisis around the borderlands between the United States, Mexico, and the northern triangle countries of Central America. How is the pandemic experienced by different civil society organizations, particularly religiously linked communities? What new programs and processes are emerging in response to the current crisis? How are continuing programs affected? Have promised efforts to reimagine a post-COVID-19 world begun?
This conversation builds on continuing discussions that focus on adaptation of faith-inspired programs during this unprecedented global pandemic. It looks to direct, lived experience of different institutions and explores comparisons as well as emerging ideas on future directions.
This brief highlights contributions to the webinar.
