Connection and Compassion in the Time of COVID-19

Jun 10, 2020, 7:00 pm

RSVP Required, must have access to Zoom

Please join Utah Humanities, in partnership with the Charter for Compassion, for an evening of virtual conversation to connect us to each other and to ourselves. This is an open invitation to discuss how compassion and the humanities deeply connect us to each other, especially in the time of COVID-19 and isolation. You’ll be encouraged to think deeply about your own beliefs, as well as keep an open mind and heart to new ideas from others. We will also ask you to practice sharing about yourself in a “brave space,” as well as actively listen to other perspectives.

To RSVP for this event, please sign up here:

This conversation will be held online over a Zoom call, which will require a computer or phone with a microphone and camera. We request that all participants, if possible, utilize their video option for the duration of the conversation so we can connect face-to-face, as well as commit to attend for the entirety of the call. The link to the Zoom call will be emailed the day of the conversation to all those who signed up with the link above, along with instructions and tips for using Zoom.

Subtitles can be available on the call if requested by email no later than June 8th, 2020.

Please contact Caitlin McDonald at with any questions.
