24. Dianne McNary — Blurring Old Divisions

Stories of COVID™

Diane McNary lives in Slovakia.  She works primarily with the Roma people, a group that has historically been discriminated against.  Earlier in their work together, the group Diane works with asked to learn to sew.  Diane and her team thought at the time that sewing would be useful for daily life, and that was all.  But as COVID-19 entered their lives, their sewing skills took on a new life, that of creating masks for the rest of the region.  Through their efforts, the group that Diane works with has received outreach and kindness in ways never before seen.  Interviewed 16 April 2020.
