Latino communities and all communities of color in the U.S. are being affected disproportionately by the spread of coronavirus. How the government responds will impact the Latino community for years to come and set a precedent for how the U.S Government responds during times of crisis and how it deals with the exigent needs of underserved communities of color. LULAC is calling for a comprehensive 15 steps Pandemic Response Plan.
