Inclusive COVID-19 Relief: Impacts on Immigrant Communities and State-Level Responses
November 5, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Recent research shows the disproportionate impacts of the coronavirus pandemic has had on low-income and minority communities in the U.S. In fact, in addition to individual health outcomes, Black and immigrant populations across the country have been more likely to experience adverse economic impacts as a result of COVID-19 as well. In this session, featured speakers will discuss the disproportionate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on immigrant communities and the cross-cutting factors that have given rise to these outcomes. It will also seek to explore strategies that state officials can employ to address these disparities through informed policymaking.
