Racial Equity Toolkit Updated to Evaluate Vaccinations
Black and Brown communities have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic - especially those experiencing homelessness. As vaccine distribution rolls out, it is important for homeless service systems to not exacerbate the health disparities already in existence.
The Alliance's Racial Equity Network (REN) has updated its Racial Equity Data Tool to include racial demographics and data points to consider for the vaccination process.
An expanded Housing Choice Voucher program could go far toward preventing and ending homelessness, and is likely to be considered as part of the federal budget for fiscal 2022.
This panel of housing policy experts and leaders of public housing authorities will discuss why a greatly expanded program is needed, how rapidly an expansion could take place, and how the expansion can support and promote racial justice.
