Latinx Equity Before/After Covid

View an online panel of experts from a health equity agency, city government, school board, and chamber of commerce discussing issues and prospects for Covid-19 recovery for Latinx and Hispanic communities, both locally and nationally. This public conversation addresses equity gaps in education, health, and economics for Latinx and Hispanic Coloradans. The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing racial and ethnic inequalities. According to recent data from the Kaiser Family Foundation, white Coloradans are twice as likely to have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine as Hispanic Coloradans.

About the Series

The issue of racism and violence against people of color runs deep. While we‘ve made progress over the years, this feels like a moment when people all over the country recognize that half-measures are not enough. This is a deep, centuries-in-the-making challenge that we face to undo racism, and we need decisive action.

Changing the Legacy of Race & Ethnicity is a conversation series initiated by Colorado Humanities and implemented with partners to encourage understanding and discussion about the legacy of race and ethnicity in America, and how to make changes now for a more just future.

The first four panel presentations are available to view on Colorado Humanities’ and select partners’ YouTube and Facebook pages.

Please help support Changing the Legacy of Race & Ethnicity through your sponsorships and personal contributions.

We urge all Coloradans to find their own ways to contribute to the struggle for justice and human rights, and we are redoubling our efforts to find ours.

We are always looking for ways to make our programs more relevant, more accessible, more inclusive, and more effective. Offering the important Changing the Legacy of Race & Ethnicity program is one more step we are taking now.
