Giving Compass' Take:
• Experts at The Aspen Institute inform viewers of the inherent injustices facing marginalized workers in the U.S., pinpointing strategies for an equitable economic recovery.
• How has the pandemic disproportionately displaced workers in marginalized communities? How is this a unique -- if challenging -- opportunity to effect real change? What are you doing to support an equitable economic recovery from coronavirus?
• Here's a list of vetted funds to direct your giving towards displaced workers during the pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic crisis have presented the nation with a once-in-a-generation challenge, exposing broad economic insecurity and stark systemic inequities among our nation’s workers, and our response will define us for decades to come. Join us as Aspen Economic Strategy Group Director Melissa Kearney, Howard University Economics Professor William Spriggs, and UnidosUS Chief Operating Officer Sonia M. Pérez, talk with New York Times Tax and Economics Reporter Jim Tankersley about how we can shape our recovery so that we emerge from this crisis a better and more resilient nation.
