CNK’s latest research briefs on vulnerable neighborhoods and those left behind by the CARES Act will be showcased at the UCLA Latino Policy and Politics Initiative’s webinar to discuss the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on California’s most vulnerable communities. Participants will include California State Controller Betty Yee, Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo and Dr. Carmen Rojas, President and CEO of the Marguerite Casey Foundation.
Public health and economic data shows that the hardest hit communities by the crisis are communities of color, which are dying and losing their income at disproportionate rates. As elected officials across cities and states discuss a recovery effort, communities that have suffered the most need to be front and center.
Join this discussion on how elected officials, philanthropy, academia and every resident can be part of the solution.
