Women and people of color are being hit the hardest by both the COVID-19 crisis and the resulting economic downturn. For decades, women and people of color have lost billions of dollars in business, have seen their admission rates into the UCs sink, and have been limited to certain roles in the workforce.

This virtual salon is sponsored by the Opportunity for All Coalition of advocates and organizations supporting ACA 5 to put equal opportunity on the ballot.
