Today the Delta Variant of the COVID-19 pandemic is making it hard for all of our communities to feel safe and thrive. The pandemic has uplifted disparities in Black, Brown and impoverished communities who have been affected at higher rates, deemed as invisible and disposable, while many immigrants have been excluded from federal COVID assistance. We experienced the murders of unarmed Black folk and blatant anti-Blackness demonstrations as well as a growth of the Black Lives Matter Movement. As a community we know that racism is a public health crisis that affects us all. The partners engaged in this work made magic happen in the midst of being afraid and losing loved ones, finding new ways to thrive and pivot when something was not working the way they needed it to.
