On Common Ground: Para Nosotros, Por Nosotros

What happens to working class communities who’ve experienced pre-existing systematic racial and health disparities before the pandemic?

With mistrust in governmental support, California’s undocumented and immigrant residents face the steepest disparity in access to resources and care during the COVID-19 crisis. Latinx communities in California reflect 55% of the state’s COVID-19 cases, despite comprising 39% of the population. Meanwhile, many remain front-line and essential workers.

Hosted by Adriana Morga reporter with KQED en Español. We will talk to Dr. Cesar Cruz from HOMIES Empowerment and Roberto Hernandez from the Mission Food Hub to discuss how they have begun to provide their predominantly Latinx communities with food.

Touch base with Clínica De la Raza and Corazón Healdsburg to discuss what the next year looks like for these communities.

This event is co-presented with El Tecolote, San Francisco’s Latino bilingual newspaper, now celebrating its 50th Anniversary. Follow their work here.
