COVID-19 Pandemic: Preliminary Response & Recovery Report   [open pdf - 0B]

Alternate Title: Systemic Inequity Preliminary Response & Recovery Report

From the Addendum: "New Yorkers are processing the pain from COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], a disease that disproportionately impacts communities of more color, because of systemic injustice. As this report has laid out paths forward through the pandemic, so must we also look forward to what changes must be made in a criminal justice system that will prevent this inequity in the future. Thousands of New Yorkers have taken to our City's streets in protest to express their pain around the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other Black Americans who have been the victims of police violence. This pain is one that is rooted not only in grief for lives cut ruthlessly short, but in frustration with a policing system that has long discriminated against people of more color."
