COVID-19 is magnifying the deep cracks in our health care system, protections for working people, and wider safety net. Formed by centuries of structural racism and decades of neoliberal policies and underinvestment in our public infrastructure, these cracks, their consequences, and COVID-19 disproportionately impact people of color, particularly Black, Latinx, and Native people.
Although increasing numbers of health departments are trying to increase access to COVID-19 testing and care to impacted communities, our equity activities need to go much further upstream.
Now — as ever — is the time to set aside concerns of objectivity and politics, and use our power to change the unjust systems that have perpetually harmed the health of communities across the US.
