Did bank promises on racial equity bounce?

Broke in Philly Weekly
As schools begin to open up again, we’re focusing on vaccine hesitancy, as well as the issues faced by college students as they struggle to juggle school and work amidst a global pandemic. We also spotlight how Philly’s school district is recovering from a drastic drop in kindergarten enrollment last year. And we hear from restaurant owners on what it takes to pay workers equitable wages.
Sincerely,
Rjaa and Jeffrey

BREAKING EVEN
PERFECT PAIRS
This week, Generocity published a three-part series, written by members of the Youth Action Board of Community Legal Services, about the economic impact of COVID-19 on young people. In the first part, Deja Morgan reflects on how the pandemic exacerbated housing insecurity, which continues to disproportionately impact young and Black renters. In part two, Alexi Chacon describes how COVID-19 worsened the student debt crisis in a rapidly shrinking job market. The final piece from Madison Nardy spotlights how job insecurity takes a toll on students who have to provide for themselves and study all while juggling caregiving duties.
