The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated the profound inequalities underpinning institutional and social structures the world over, reflected not only in which populations have suffered the brunt of infections and mortality, but also in its far-reaching social and economic disruptions. To what exent have the pandemic and governments' responses to it reflected and reproduced differential access to citizenship rights across different societal groups -- from access to health care and policies to mitigate economic distress, to the ability to engage in civil, political, and social life? As the brunt of this pandemic has now come to be felt most acutely in the Americas, join us for a conversation with advocates and activists from Cali, Chicago, and Port-au-Prince about the impact of COVID-19 on their cities, and the strategies to support affected communities.
