Estrangement and belonging during COVID-19

COVID-19 has clearly exposed, as well as exacerbated, the deep racial/ethnic and socio-economic divides of our country. If there was any doubt of the profound, historical sources of those divisions, after May 25th, we are experiencing, once again, the intense pain that is the direct consequence of structural racism/oppression, marginalization and socio-economic injustice.
