COVID-19, Structural Racism, and Community Investment: Notes Toward a Just Recovery   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "Crises by their very nature are times of disruption. Our customary activities and ingrained mental models, things that seem natural and inevitable, can fall by the wayside. As the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has escalated, our normal routines--commuting to work, gathering with family and friends, going to the movies, sending kids out the door to school--have gone out the window. In response to George Floyd's murder and the persistence of police violence, Americans have taken to the streets in unprecedented numbers and places demanding action to address entrenched structural racism. As we have lived through the profound physical, economic, social, and political disruptions of the last few months, we are confronted by realities that some of us already knew too well but others may never have noticed."
