COVID-19: What’s Equity Got to Do With It?


From GW Milken Institute School of Public Health: “For the past five years, the Building Community Resilience Networks and Collaborative has worked across sectors to address and prevent childhood adversity by fostering equity to promote resilience. Today, our partners are responding to a global pandemic that threatens the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve. Pre-existing inequities that drive chronic adversity are only exacerbated in the face of school closings and the shutdown of businesses that support hourly workers. Economic uncertainty coupled with the disruption of life as we know it upends the sense of safety and stability for caregivers and our children.”
