COVID-19 (coronavirus) will have serious negative impacts on Black, Indigenous, people of color, immigrants, and low-income, LGBTQ and incarcerated people and communities. The COVID-19 pandemic is intensifying the daily impacts of systemic racism on people of color who are already experiencing limited access to health care and paid sick leave, mass incarceration, and higher rates of underlying conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and respiratory illnesses that make COVID-19 infections deadly.
In solidarity with social justice and health equity movements to make sure our communities receive the necessary health care, services and resources, CURE launched the COVID-19 Equitable Response Community Commons hub featuring over 20 categories addressing anti-racism and stigma, policy demands and calls to action, mutual aid networks, testing and health care services, emergency financial assistance and more. Use the hub to find and share resources and take action for a fair and just response to the coronavirus pandemic. To add a resource to the hub, email cwilkinson[at]urbanandracialequity.org.
