Join us for an ongoing series, 19 Minutes with The 19th. We want to give you, our audience, the opportunity to ask our reporters questions about their work and the issues facing communities across the country. Last week I talked to our editor-at-large Errin Haines about Sen. Kamala Harris, the Black female electorate and the future of securing suffrage for all. Watch it here.
Episode two will premiere live Friday, September 4. We’ll talk to Chabeli Carrazana, The 19th’s economy reporter. Carrazana has been closely covering the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, which has disproportionately impacted women, especially women of color. More Latinas have lost jobs in the wake of coronavirus than any other subset of women. Black women are a close second.
In three months, women lost a decade’s worth of economic advancement. How long will it take to catch back up? Will lost jobs ever come back? What happens to the future of child care? Carrazana will discuss the issues surrounding America’s first female recession and more during our 19-minute conversation.
