A Progressive Southern Strategy with Stacey Abrams and Tom Perriello
Join us October 6 for a live webinar conversation featuring:

Stacey Abrams
Executive Director, Southern Economic Advancement Project

Tom Perriello
Executive Director, Open Society-U.S.

The twin health and economic crises of COVID-19 have hit the South particularly hard—exacerbating already-steep inequities. The South has demonstrably higher shares of populations at greatest risk, lower rates of paid sick leave coverage, lower rates of health coverage due to failure to expand Medicaid, higher poverty rates, and fewer resources to navigate these crises. Yet the South also has some of the most resilient communities and incredible organizations ready to help meet today’s needs and fight for an equitable future.

Stacey Abrams, in conversation with Tom Perriello, will share new insights on what a progressive Southern strategy for an equitable recovery looks like—and how leaders across the South are innovating and building toward it.
