The Dual Pandemic: Racial Inequalities, Racism, & COVID-19

This webinar focuses on the ways that the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted long-standing racial disparities in US society. Panelists consider how some leaders actually fomented racism against communities of color by sending racialized messages about the origins of the virus to the American public, and close with a discussion of ways to address these disparities through antiracist politics.
