Today, TIME publishes Finding Hope: A TIME 100 Special Report. In the issue, members of the TIME 100 community—including leading doctors, scientists, politicians, artists, athletes and entertainers—address the coronavirus pandemic by sharing insights into how to navigate this new reality and offering solutions to the challenges we must all now face, through op-eds, interviews with TIME, and more.
TIME editor in chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal writes in his letter to readers:
“For this issue, which we had planned as our annual TIME 100, we instead asked members of our TIME 100 community for insights and perspectives on some of the challenges we are all facing in navigating the new realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 50 of them agreed to be part of this special issue…. Throughout these contributions, notes Dan Macsai, editorial director of the TIME?100, who oversaw the issue, ‘there is an underlying message of resilience and hope.’”
“The TIME 100 has always been a mirror of the world and the people who shape it. And as our world now looks far different than we expected, so too will our annual TIME?100 list and issue when it appears in the fall.”
