In collaboration with The John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation, a Fund of The San Antonio Area Foundation, TPR presents Vital Conversations, a series of community conversations centered on four priority impact areas: Livable & Resilient Communities; Youth Success; Successful Aging; and Cultural Vibrancy.

Vital Conversations: Rebuilding For Resiliency - Watch Now


How we re-build after the COVID-19 pandemic in a way that positively addresses the systemic racial inequalities and consequent economic disparity in our community.  How do we build a more livable and resilient community? TPR explores the topic in two shows.

Thursday, July 30, noon
Rebuilding for Resiliency
Broadcast on The Source on TPR news stations, online at tpr.org, on the TPR app. 

Panelists include: 
Tommy Calvert, Bexar County Commissioner, Precinct 4
Dr. Ana "Cha" Guzman, San Antonio Housing Authority, Chair  
Ana Sandoval, San Antonio City Council Member

Hosted by David Martin Davies, from noon to 1 pm on Thursday, July 30, this special episode of The Source addresses how to build back better after COVID-19 given the systemic racial inequalities and consequent economic disparity in our community.  The show will be re-broadcast that same day at 7 pm.  

Friday, July 31, 2pm

Vital Conversations: Rebuilding for Resiliency - What's Next? (Live on Gotowebinar)

Panelists include:

Scott Ackerson, EVP Strategic Relationships, Prospera Housing Community Services
Janie Barrera, President & CEO, LiftFund
Marjie French, CEO of San Antonio Area Foundation
Tuesdae Knight, CEO of San Antonio Growth on the Eastside (SAGE)

A deeper dive, this live conversation moderated by David Martin Davies offers a “nuts and bolts” approach to rebuilding in a way that addresses racial and economic disparities.  Formatted like a Town Hall, this Vital Conversation includes a different panel comprised of “boots on the ground” leaders of nonprofits.  To be streamed live on TPR’s Facebook and website, public will have an opportunity to comment, ask questions and help inform the conversation.
