As we are all too aware, COVID-19 has changed our daily lives and our communities. And while we are still grappling with how to navigate living with the virus among us, we can -- and should -- start thinking about what it means for our communities. Asking ourselves how we can improve our cities, not only to address this virus, but to address the existing issues it has made more visible.
These questions are being debated and studied by some of the nation's leading thinkers. We're curating a repository of articles, reports, podcasts, and webinars to keep you up-to-date on the discussion.
