Friends, I’m looking for a few good sources to help my clients *feel* how the COVID crisis is affecting the Latinx community, especially “less acculturated,” Spanish-dominant folks in the US. Could be a podcast episode, photojournalism, artwork, an op-Ed. I have lots of numbers and stats, but I need help finding something more evocative than hard-to-feel-real percentages. Much appreciated!

We live in NE so housing and tax is high and stressed by the sticker. Any insights would be appreciated
