From a Great Society to a Resilient Society: Episode 3 – Impact of COVID-19 on Society’s Vulnerable

LBJ School experts Ruth Wasem and Michele Deitch join “From a Great Society to a Resilient Society” to discuss how COVID-19 has impacted two of society’s most vulnerable populations: immigrants and prison and jail populations. Host Steven Pedigo talks with Wasem and Deitch about the conditions that led to COVID-19’s impact on these populations and potential opportunities for bipartisan legislation at the federal and state levels.  This podcast series is a continuation of a policy toolkit released by the LBJ School in December 2020.
