Sept. 22: Indigenous Migrant Communities — The forgotten ones in the age of COVID19
This forum will spotlight and analyze the experiences and forms of organizing during COVID-19 and its impact on the livelihoods and identities of Indigenous and migrant farmworkers. COVID-19 has highly impacted Indigenous peoples due to the exclusion of undocumented people from most benefits, as well as structural inequities in access to health and other resources.
