We are still beginning to understand the full impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic on the United States, but it is already clear that the disease has disproportionately affected immigrant, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Many are at the frontlines of "essential" industries and have been at greater risk of infection and mortality. Some have been in industries that have shut down or greatly contracted during the pandemic. Others have been at the forefront of increased PPE distribution and vaccine development.
Presented in partnership with the Mellon Environmental Stewardship, Place, and Community Initiative
