The racial impacts of COVID-19: Articles

The COVID-19 crisis is hurting all our communities, but not equally. The data that would allow us to document the pandemic’s uneven toll rigorously are incomplete and only now emerging - and it’s already clear that communities of color, including children, once again are on the frontlines of vulnerability.

We’ve gathered - and are updating regularly - news links that begin to tell the story of the impact of COVID-19 on Black, Indigenous and People of Color and other racialized communities. These communities have been sounding the alarm about the vulnerabilities imposed on them by systemic bigotry and malign neglect for a very long time. Will our policy makers and all of us, collectively, hear and respond to the clarion call this time around? (Also see COVID Resources that Take Race Seriously.)
