In an era of uncertainty and economic and personal strain, we want you to know that the Pacific Council on International Policy is here for our members and the broader community.
While we cannot host in-person events in the same way we have for the past 25 years, we are scheduling teleconferences with world-class experts who will speak to the global coronavirus pandemic and the different ways it is impacting the world economy, international and bilateral relations, immigration, and more. We will also continue to host virtual events on topics beyond the pandemic, as issues of international concern will continue during and after this crisis. In a gesture of unity, we are calling this the “Staying Connected Series.”
All virtual events will be posted to our activities page, and members can register as usual through our website for information about how to join the calls. If you are not a Pacific Council member and would like to tune into our calls, please fill out this form to find out how to connect.
You can read original content about the coronavirus on our Newsroom. We post new content almost daily, and will continue to share commentary and analysis about topics beyond the pandemic, as well.
Whether you are already a supporter, member, or learning about the Pacific Council for the first time, please consider supporting our work to promote global engagement in Los Angeles and California. Like many nonprofits, the Pacific Council relies on the support of our generous donors, and the pandemic is already having an adverse effect on our revenue. Any support you can provide at this time would be greatly appreciated.
More than ever, community is essential, even if we are congregating through screens and telephones, where we cannot exchange germs but can always and will always exchange ideas and sound, factual information about the world. For possibly the first time in history, we are able to understand what our global neighbors are experiencing in real time, as we experience the same circumstances the world over. Our hope is that we can become more empathetic to one another during this time.
