CAMBRIDGE FORUM invites you to a free public discussion on Tuesday, June 8 at 4 pm ET.


The pandemic was a lethal litmus test for relationships of all kinds. A motley assortment of people found themselves locked down together. Some saw the deaths of family or friends. Others were deprived of seeing neighbors, co-workers, schoolfriends or they lost the support of community groups like choirs. As we emerge from the Covid cocoon, a significant number of relationships have cemented or ended but several million Americans have also acquired pets.


Rich Slatcher is Professor of Psychology at the University of Georgia. His research and teaching focusses on understanding the effects of people’s close relationships on their health and well-being. He currently oversees the Love in the Time of COVID project to examine the global effects of the pandemic on people’s social relationships.


Andrés Holder is Executive Director of the Boston Children’s Chorus. He has over ten years of experience in performing arts management through his work with Gala Hispanic Theatre, Arena Stage, and The Washington Ballet.


Mark Cushing is a lawyer and author of Pet Nation, an inside look at how over the past 20 years, pets have become treasured members of the American family.


Has America’s love affair with pets created a national cultural transformation?
