With coronavirus or any pandemic, we know it’s the communities facing poverty and already pushed to the margins that face the greatest risks. Viruses don’t discriminate, but people and policies too often do. The coronavirus pandemic is exposing just how far the world has to go toward protecting the rights and needs of everyone – and just what an important role advocates can play.
