Southern California’s Critical Needs in a Post-COVID Economy
The pandemic wreaked havoc on our lives, our community, and our economy and we are not out of the woods yet. In fact, experts predict full economy recovery from COVID is likely years away.
In the meantime, tens of thousands of residents here in Southern California are out of work or underemployed, and barely making ends meet. Sadly, our community’s uniqueness is the very thing that is negatively impacting the lives of so many people here – from extremely high housing costs, to transportation constraints, to a lack of affordable child care and a staggeringly high poverty rate compared to the rest of the country.
