COVID-19 and Racism with Tish James 5/21/20

“This crisis has illuminated the stark inequalities that have existed in this country long before this crisis but have now been brought to the forefront.”- Attorney General Letitia James

Letitia “Tish” James, the first woman of color to be elected to the position of Attorney General in New York State, spoke with T’ruah about the ways in which COVID-19 has particularly affected people of color, and that a proper response to COVID-19 must account for that imbalance. Rabbi Ellen Lippmann grounded our conversation in Torah, reminding us that all human beings are created in the image of God, and that all blood that is shed diminishes the image of God.
