Episode 5: COVID Affects Us All… Just Not Equally

About this Episode:

As the pandemic moves across the U.S., it’s bringing into sharp relief the fact that certain populations are suffering far more than others. In this episode, we look at what particular challenges face the homeless, the incarcerated, people of color, and new immigrants as they try to stay safe. America’s inequities are undeniable.
