Lauren Fardig-Diop
56:35
As a teacher in Ypsi, my students also don’t have access to the internet — how can we mobilize for public wifi access so that students are able to connect? The digital divide will further leave my students behind and exacerbate the inequities that exist when school is in session.
Stephen Laatsch
57:15
We are trying to donate weekly to food banks to support people in need around the County. But, are there specific organizations in which we should donate that would better directly support people of color who are dealing with this Pandemic?

Lila Jarrett Asante-Appiah
01:15:36
Excellent points, Darryl!
Lisa Jackson
01:15:53
I think one of the challenges is making the communication salient when this is over. Eventually this urgency will fade; we need to fight complacency, because this, or something like this will happen again.
Lauren Fardig-Diop
01:16:55
Yes! Texting is the only way I’ve been able to get in touch with my students.
Lila Jarrett Asante-Appiah

“If I love you I have to make you conscious of the things you don't see.” — James Baldwin.To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.
Tsukumo Niwa

I love these quotes. Could you read them out loud for those joining w/o video?
Lauren Fardig-Diop
01:23:09
Holding space for you Clarissa.
Lisa Jackson

LaRon
01:28:26
COVID-19 has placed a spotlight upon the inequities of our society (and of most of the rest of the world) The ways for us to continue in the aftermath of coronavirus will have to be on a scale that compares to the ways humanity has been able to move past mass scale historical evils. This is not a short term, relatively small scale disaster )like a hurricane or flood). This is a world-wide phenomenon that calls for a massive restructuring of values, ways of thinking. I believe, at the core, is the issue of placing human life above the products produced by humans.
Erica Briggs
01:28:27
very powerful stories and perspectives shared today. thank you. such important lessons for today, but for tomorrow.
Margy Long
01:29:09
Yodit- I’ve felt that too. I’m so worried that the craving for “normal” will make those in power to ignore what we’ve learned
Tina Jordan
01:29:28
Everyone on the panel is a blessing and brining forth such valuable points.
Amanda Crosby
01:30:36
It has reinforced that every vote for every legislator and on every issue matters. You are putting your every day lives in the hands of those you vote for. The issues you vote for create the conditions in which we all live.
Markell Miller (Food Gatherers)
01:31:00
Yes, I echo margy and Yodit and Clarissa - a return to normal is NOT a win. Many people were already facing extreme inequities in health, wealth, opportunity, etc. This has shone a light on this for others who were not aware. How do we use this disaster to make changes?
psmith
01:31:17
Please encourage people to participate in the census!
Markell Miller (Food Gatherers)
01:31:26
(and thank you to the panelists for vulnerably sharing their stories and thoughts)

Thank you Toni!
Bethanni Grecynski
01:31:58
would love a link for that @YMCA online 4/15 release to post on Neutral Zone website for teens to access while Neutral Zone is at limited capacity
Tina Jordan
01:32:01
Is the YMCA information available on your website, Toni?
rhondafields
01:32:07
Whewwwww these quotes Clarissa—thank you!
Bethanni Grecynski
01:33:12
is the YMCA sign up 8am 4/15 first come first serve / limited registration or is it limitless registration?
Margy Long
01:33:18
I agree Pam! Involvement in the census is critical and easy to forget during this crisis
Lauren Fardig-Diop
01:33:21
Thank you Toni.
Lila Jarrett Asante-Appiah
01:34:08
Thank you to all the panelists!
Naomi Norman

Tina Jordan
01:35:07
Zoom Events can hold up to 300 people. I wonder if they would offer that service at no charge to non-profits during COVID.
tkayumi
01:35:28
100 people maximum per Zoom class. The general public can register online at AnnArborYMCA.org, beginning Wed. April 15th at 8AM. The classes are FREE.
