Two journalists explore the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on minorities and immigrants in the United States.
In this podcast, we interviewed Rashad Robinson, president of Color of Change, a national group that uses online activism to advocate for African Americans. We talked about technology and its role in the response to the COVID-19 crisis and to the widespread protests over racism.

For more on our conversation with Robinson, please read our story on technology, the coronavirus and race in this week’s newsletter. It also includes quotes from an Edward Snowden talk this week, plus updates on immigration news and anti-Asian sentiment. Thanks for reading and listening.
