San Diego is home to large and diverse immigrant, refugee, and asylum-seeking communities. While COVID-19 crisis affects us all, communities of color, working-class communities, and immigrant communities are often on the front lines of public health crises without the proper resources or support systems they need to weather the storm.
This Community Conversation will bring together providers from across the Latinx and Middle Eastern communities to discuss the emotional, economic, and public health impact COVID-19 has had in these communities and how these two immigrant communities have maintained resiliency and hope during this pandemic.
