COVID-19 In NYC: What We’ve Learned & How We’re Moving Forward


March 17, 2021

10:30 am - 11:45 am

Join us on March 17 at 10:30am for a joint presentation between South Bronx Rising Together and  Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York on recently released city-wide findings.

This past February, South Bronx Rising Together released the report COVID-19 In NYC: What We’ve Learned & How We’re Moving Forward on Bronx Community District 3 which highlights key findings from a common needs assessment distributed to NYC parents and caregivers in 2020.  The purpose of this report is to more fully understand the barriers students and their families have faced during the COVID-19 public health crisis including from families living in zip codes that overlap with Bronx Community District 3.

The conversation will be followed by breakout room discussions on how we can refine and collectively advocate for policies that address the gaps and disparities we see in the following areas:

  • Online Learning
  • Child Care
  • Mental Health
  • Food Access
  • Housing Security

Participants will have the opportunity to self-select what breakout room discussion you would like to attend. Feel free to invite additional staff at your organizations as you see fit in order to have a robust conversation!
