On this season, we’re working in partnership with the University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health. Together, we are bringing you the Connected Communities in a Time of Physical Distancing project in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through this research, we’re taking a deep dive into the community-level impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through conversations with community leaders, we are learning more about how networks of grassroots leaders, partners and institutions impact each other.
Maddy Macnab, Coordinator of Community Knowledge Mobilization East Scarborough Storefront and Desrene Cole, community advocate of Kingston-Galloway-Orton Park (KGO) connect to reflect on what grassroots network mobilization; what it is, how it works, and why it is vital for an equitable grassroots-led pandemic response.
