Economic Recovery & Safety Net Support for Families

Video: Sarah de Guia, Sharon Terman & Danilo Trisi discuss policy solutions to support children & families

Communities of color continue to face the steepest challenges as the economic fallout from the pandemic continues. This year, federal and state governments have a historic opportunity to invest in racial equity as we build toward economic recovery for children and families.

On July 22, ChangeLab Solutions CEO Sarah de Guia hosted a Twitter briefing with Sharon Terman, director of the Work and Family Program and senior staff attorney at Legal Aid at Work, and Danilo Trisi, director of poverty and inequality research at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Touching on paid leave, housing affordability, and how benefits are administered, the speakers discussed the scope and efficacy of policies implemented during the pandemic to protect families and children, as well as policy solutions for a post-COVID era.

This briefing is part of a series presented by Public Health Law Watch. The COVID-19 Law & Policy Briefings offer discussion and recommendations on how federal, state, and local leaders can better respond to COVID-19.
