Join YES! Executive Editor Zenobia Jeffries Warfield for a free virtual discussion with author and YES! contributor Nafeez Ahmed and YES! Co-founder David Korten on how the pandemic and current global uprisings will serve as a portal to a new normal.
As Ahmed writes in the cover story of the Community Power issue of YES! Magazine, what comes next is an opening to a new world where our capacity to love each other is integral to our survival and will be formed by “what we devote ourselves to, where our alignments lie, and what our real commitments are.”
When: Thursday, July 16, 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

More than 20 years ago, David Korten was offering small groups of people a profound vision to ‘restore democracy and create mindful market economies. We can create cultures and the institutions of the just, sustainable, and compassionate world of which we all dream. It’s taken a full-blown pandemic to snap us awake…Within this threshold moment, outsized opportunities to bring such vision into the forefront of policy are rapidly emerging.”
