(from event page) As we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, King County is going through a period of huge forced change. But that can be a good thing.

In this series of three panels, King County Executive Dow Constantine will be joined by twelve local leaders to explore the challenges our region faces, and what we can do during this period of upheaval to address issues including economic inequality, racism, access to healthcare, climate change, unemployment, small business recovery, education, housing, childcare, food access, and transportation.

Join us on Zoom as we prepare to make our region’s post-COVID future better than our pre-COVID past.
