We are in a pandemic. A pandemic that has impacted all of us, but one which is disproportionally impacting indigenous and people of color, especially black people. Deaths from COVID-19 for black Americans are nearly two times greater than would be expected based on their share of the population . The recent killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and many others show the systemic racism and inequity that persists in the United States today.
