Utilizing Data to Give Meaning to Impact and Plot a Just Recovery

Jazmin Chavez May 28, 2021

For more than a year, we heard stories of “essential,” but seemingly disposable, workers losing their lives and livelihoods to COVID-19. All the while, access to the tools of recovery (from stimulus checks to vaccines) remained dismal for low-income communities. As the globe plots a post-pandemic future, we need more than stories to move funding, hearts, minds – and policies – to address the systemic disparities that COVID revealed. HIP’s COVID-19 Impact Disparity Project takes a detailed look at the impacts of COVID on Latin America and Latinx communities across the Americas. Along with other data-visualization and data-sharing efforts coming out of the pandemic, HIP’s project provides a lasting and evolving framework for decision-makers, grantmakers, and policy-makers to use when unpacking the impact of 2020 and envision lasting systemic change.

COVID-19 recovery, data, Latinx

Purpose and Desired Outcome

Through high-impact data visualizations, using HIP's Covid Impact Mapping Tool, attendees will see how COVID-19 affected the Latinx community nationwide and globally, from business closures and income loss to hospitalization, vaccination, and mortality rates. Guided by data, guests will then be able to use this data to envision and implement solutions going forward that fully include Latin America and Latinx communities in the US and beyond. https://covid19impactdisparity.org/about/
