Crisis Briefings

Crisis Briefings sub-logo wave

In times of crisis, connection, communication and collaborative action are essential. Gathering Ground’s cross-sector movement provides the opportunity for quick activation of networks to disseminate timely information in rapidly changing environments and for people and organizations to connect and coordinate efforts. 

2020 COVID-19 Briefings: In response to the global shutdown from COVID-19, as situations rapidly deteriorated and information changed on a daily basis, we launched a 10-week series of virtual statewide conversations and activated our expansive network of colleagues with expertise in health, nonprofit advocacy, food justice, journalism, accessibility, education, emergency management and government services, and philanthropy, among other fields. 

These Briefings welcomed twenty-two guest expert speakers, who shared timely and critical updates related to the COVID-19 Needs and Response Activities in New Jersey. In true Gathering Ground style, these sessions were not typical webinars but rather interactive, collaborative conversations. 

We developed a compendium of summary reports from these conversations, which include hundreds of links to information and resources.
