Introducing Speaking of Dignity

The coronavirus pandemic has only exacerbated the longstanding challenges confronting working people in the twenty-first century American economy. Though we commonly hear that COVID-19 is creating a wartime “we’re all in this together” mentality, the sobering truth is that the pandemic is disproportionately impacting particular segments of the workforce, especially those in black and brown communities. To listen to the voices of those workers whose labor we recognize as essential but who rarely get an opportunity to share in a public forum their experiences, expertise, and thoughts, the Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame is proud to announce a new podcast: “Speaking of Dignity: Workers on the Front Lines and the Common Good.”
