Las desigualdades económicas fundamentales en Massachusetts han sido descubiertas y magnificadas a medida que hemos enfrentado los desafíos de una pandemia en el último año y medio. El objetivo de este foro es comprender las contribuciones hechas por los trabajadores latinos durante la cúspide de la pandemia, muchos de los cuales se consideraron esenciales y mantuvieron en funcionamiento los servicios vitales. A través de este enfoque, examinaremos cómo y por qué una recuperación equitativa del mercado laboral para los latinos en Massachusetts es esencial, ahora y en el futuro.

Juntos, buscaremos un camino a seguir. Identificaremos pasos hacia la inversión en una recuperación equitativa y el bienestar socioeconómico a través de todas las comunidades.
