Insecurity: Economic Hardship in the Pandemic Era

Join us for an in-person and livestreamed conversation on May 23 at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Date: May 23, 2023

Time: 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT


The Intercept and the Economic Hardship Reporting Project are proud to co-host a screening of “Insecurity,” a series of short films about three women who grapple for what they need after the pandemic upends their lives: social services, a living wage, and decent mental health care.

The films will be interspersed with a conversation about economic hardship and insecurity in the pandemic era. The panel, moderated by executive producer Lauren Feeney, includes Alissa Quart, executive director of the Economic Hardship Reporting Project; series producers Karla Murthy and Mona Iskander; and Lisa Ventura, a poet, artist, mom, and former social worker who is featured in the series.

If you’re in New York City, you can also join us in person at The People’s Forum at 320 West 37th St. Admission is free, but please note that space is limited, so early arrival is suggested.
