Immigrants Rising

Immigrants Rising

The pandemic and the economic fallout has disproportionately impacted immigrant communities. More likely to be in low-waged and/or “essential” sectors such as food service/production and hospitality and with lack of readily accessible, affordable healthcare, immigrant communities have higher rates of infection and death from COVID and overly bear the economic hardships stemming from the pandemic.
