Attorney and activist Ally Coll left her post at prominent law firm Boies Schiller after learning of the firm's partnership with Black Cube in its defense of now-convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.

Staying Connected in a Time of Coronavirus
This is a strange new reality. We're being encouraged to keep our physical distance from one another, as it's the only way we can help "flatten the curve." It's clear that we're all in this together, but as we're keeping our distance, how do we feel connected? A big part of the answer lies in sharing our stories. This week, we're checking in with four listeners around the world - including our friend Kate Burson, in Milan, Italy - to see how they're doing and how the response to COVID-19 is affecting their work and their lives.
