Resilience vs Resistance — Pursuing Policy Change During the COVID-19 Crisis (Season 2, Episode 2)

Posted on 8 Oct 2020

In episode 2.2, we deal with the resilience of ideas.

For much of the COVID-19 crisis, community has been at the forefront of the conversation, and there has been acknowledgement that we need an economy that serves society as opposed to a society that serves the economy. But as we move out of the immediate crisis and begin to feel the longer-term financial effects, how do we sustain the momentum, resist pushback, and create concrete policy change?

We speak to Michelle Murphy from Social Justice Ireland, and Claire Brophy from the Abortion Rights Campaign about policy, activism, and proven strategies for change.
