Beyond Bigots & Snowflakes (Late summer 2020)

In this series of short videos, Ilana introduces many of the concepts that shape her work. While the problems she addresses were around long before the coronavirus, that moment  shined a spotlight on them in a particularly stark manner.


For instance, our responses to the virus varied along ideological or partisan divides to an extent that is unusual for a national emergency.

These videos are part of her effort to provide people with opportunities for people to engage with one another on sensitive topics in a productive manner. If you find them useful, please  share with people you know.  And, of course, please get in touch with any comments, thoughts, or concerns. It's wonderful to hear from you.

The videos can be watched in any order (although there is an introduction and a conclusion). They are listed in the order they were conceptualized.
