About this Event
Recognizing the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on racial and ethnic groups in the U.S., as well as the dire need for data informed legislation, a COVID-19 communities of color (COC) needs assessment was launched on behalf of members of several congressional caucuses by The Alliance of National Psychological Associations for Racial and Ethnic Equity (The Alliance). Findings revealed more than a pandemic for communities of color; COVID’s impact represented a syndemic for these communities. Key findings and implications will be shared. Representatives from each of the Alliance organizations will present along with the project principle investigator, Cheryl Grills. This includes: The Asian American Psychological Association, The Association of Black Psychologists, The Indigenous Wellness Research Institute, The National Latinx Psychological Association, and The American Psychological Association.
