June 6, 2020

For the past eight days, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic that has so far claimed more than 100,000 U.S. lives and left more than 40 million Americans unemployed in its wake, protests have been held in all 50 U.S. states and spread to countries around the world, in an all-out rebuke of aggressive police tactics and racism.

Public Strategies’ Howard Schweitzer, Mark Alderman and Jim Schultz discuss what has undoubtedly been an unprecedented week in the country and one that has communicated a powerful and transformative sense of urgency.
