This event is organized by dedicated individuals who are committed to help educate their peers on creating equality at all levels.

2020 has been a year unlike any other and the pandemic fueled social isolation has impacted people on a physical, mental and emotional level. It has also shed light on the importance of truly essential workers from healthcare to teachers to parks and recreation professionals while accelerating technology adoption and societal inequities.

Our ideas explore the impact of the Pandemic and Social Justice, individually and collectively. We look through various lenses and hear from different voices as we explore the intersection of economic, biological, environmental, technological and social justice challenges and how we can collectively build a better world for us all.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, His Holiness The Pope, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Pink.
