NAACP of Dane County Addresses Impact of COVID-19 on Communities of Color

The NAACP of Dane County states that “Because of the racial and economic inequities embedded in our country’s systems, the effects of the coronavirus could be compounded for Black, Brown, Asian, and indigenous communities, as well as other population groups”. The NAACP released the “Ten Equity Implications of the Coronavirus COVID-19 Outbreak in the United States”, a resource to guide officials responsible for addressing health, economic, and other impacts in remediating some of the issues that are disproportionately affecting communities of color.
