All eyes have been focused on the Biden administration in its first week as the president seeks to revive the nation with a suite of executive orders addressing climate change, racial justice, the economy, and the coronavirus pandemic. This week, Jesse connects with Dr. Reed Tuckson, a founding member of the Black Coalition Against COVID-19, to talk about the racial disparities the public health response has produced and how President Joe Biden’s efforts can help reverse some of these trends.
