New America CA is committed to ensuring that the perspectives of Latinx communities are heard and incorporated as California develops innovative solutions to pressing public problems. As we grapple with the enormous repercussions of the global pandemic, we are dedicated to shining a light on the impacts on all Californians.
While it is true that the COVID-19 outbreak impacts all Americans, it has, quite simply, impacted the Latinx community disproportionately. The coronavirus has highlighted disparities in the workplace and in society, which have long gone unaddressed. The more we understand these challenges as we rebuild from this crisis, the greater the likelihood that we will emerge as a more inclusive and just place.
Join New America CA on Tuesday, July 7th at 2:30 PM PDT for Latinx Economic Resilience in the Time of COVID. This live streamed conversation will feature local and national experts who will provide insights and resources, as well as move attendees toward action-oriented solutions.
The conversation will focus on understanding the challenges facing Latinx workers and families, especially those experiencing increased economic precarity during the COVID-19 crisis. We'll focus on solutions, exploring ways to meet families' immediate income needs, as well as their employment needs via access to more recession-resilient jobs and skills in the future. Economic equity leaders will share the needs they are seeing, along with resources and ideas that can help Latinx communities thrive during and after the pandemic.
Registration is free and open to all.
