Humboldt Project Supports Journalism On COVID-19 Impacts In Underserved Communities
Descriptions of the virus that causes COVID-19 often include terms like "aggressive," but it's a virus; it has no sentience, only the basic virus mission.
What is true is the unequal distribution of the virus: people of color get a higher proportion of cases than their numbers in society. In Humboldt County, the Latinx population is getting hit harder than the general population.
This is one finding of the "Community Voices Coalition" project set up to support journalism on virus effects on underserved communities. It includes the North Coast Journal and other outlets.
Humboldt Area Foundation and Wild Rivers Community Foundation started the project. Thadeus Greenson of the Journal visits with details.
