ITT Sound Off: Lost POC Lives

Maria and Julio discuss how the Latinx community is being affected by the COVID-19 crisis. They highlight the latest Latino USA episode which looks inside a New York City hospital's ICU. Also, they continue to dive into the cruel, inhumane conditions at detention centers and prisons around the country.


ITT Staff Picks:

  • Latino Rebels reports on a lawsuit filed by four migrant detainees against the Elizabeth Detention Center, a private prison in New Jersey. 
  • A poll of nearly 2,000 Latinx Americans nationwide shows that they continue to be disproportionately affected by the virus via NBC News. 
  • The virus has hit correction officers and inmates — who are majority black and Latinx — especially hard in New York City with 1,259 guards and 545 inmates infected via The New York Times.
