“Amid this time of pandemics, protests, and partisanship, there isn’t much good news out there. But there is some. Take the Project Support Initiative.”

“Mahajan told me that he ‘came up with this idea when my research mentor told me how he was scared to go get groceries as both him and his wife were quite elderly, and he didn’t want to bring the virus back to his house and put her life at risk.
