Connecticut’s Excluded Communities: Key Findings from a COVID-19 Community Impact Survey

Connecticut’s Latinx and immigrant communities are being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    This echoes the experiences of Black and Latinx communities around the country who are disproportionately impacted. Against the backdrop of COVID-19, Make the Road Connecticut (MRCT) launched an impact survey to more fully understand the public health and economic crises facing people of color and immigrants across the state.

    The survey highlights key issues facing these communities and underscores the need for policy solutions that are both responsive to this urgent moment and center those most impacted. MRCT conducted in-depth surveys with 100 community members in fall 2020. The survey findings reveal widespread financial instability and hardship among Connecticut’s most vulnerable residents.
