Global Covid Response: Lessons Learned and Next Steps

January 27 @ 11:00 AM 12:30 PM

Join this Online Discussion: Hosted by Action Corps, Advocacy Network for Africa & Global COVID Response Coalition including the Center for Economic and Policy Research. Discussion will focus on how the coalition built people-power by bringing together a diverse group of advocates – including nuns, farmers, economists, and members of the African diaspora – and how it achieved congressional support for the historic release of “Special Drawing Rights.”

Learn about the role the coalition played in the International Monetary Fund’s historic release of Special Drawing Rights — an emergency financial resource — to 190 countries and what the coalition aims to do in the new year to ensure countries have the resources they need to respond to the pandemic.
