One thing that we need to hold carefully in mind is that people will have many visible and invisible constraints on their ability to re-engage face to face. In many (all?!) countries Covid is not under control, and face to face meetings can expose people to risks they are not ready, or able, to take on. We need to respect that, and create spaces where we can ‘meet’ them where they are on that journey or re-engagement. Carefully, respectfully, without stigma, and prioritising everyone’s safety.

We assisted a women's prison to collect clothing for women who were being released. Specifically women who did not have family to pick them up and would be riding buses home. The routine donation stream had a gap and others had to be identified to collect clothing and drive several hours to the prison for delivery.
Ken Patterson (he/him)

Thanks for your work on that Rhonda.

Covid has increased the political polarization in the US which creates challenges advocating on our issues. Also, the presumption here in the US is that this Covid pandemic is wrapping up. While in the rest of the world, the pandemic is continuing. In our advocacy meetings we were able to include people from Africa in our meetings with Congress which enhanced our advocacy meeting.

That is great Rhonda.

For now is still to maintain virtual engagements because of COVID 19. As it is not aluta yet. Capacitate CS to use different virtual platforms

Thanks for sharing Jamaica, I agree it is hard to engage people in advocacy when their basic needs haven't been met. But maybe later. Thank you Jamaica for accepting their answers and find ways to help them.
