The coronavirus didn’t create inequality in America. But it has exposed and exacerbated underlying gaps.
Those gaps—in wages and wealth, housing, education, and health care, among other areas—are wide and growing. Closing them will require more than incremental reform.

We have a chance not only to flip the Senate but also to forge a new path—toward an economy that works for all of us.
How do we get there? Join the discussion at tonight’s Virtual Town Hall

A gulf between rich and poor divides Colorado in ways the pandemic has laid bare. As the Denver Post points out, “low-wage earners, and particularly undocumented workers, are more likely to be laid off or to stay in dangerous jobs out of fear of losing employment; incarcerated people account for the largest known outbreaks in the state; black and Latino Coloradans are disproportionately likely to catch the virus; poorer families cannot adapt to online schooling as nimbly as wealthier ones; and housing insecurity has skyrocketed.”
These problems reflect deep, structural disparities—fault lines that won’t disappear when the pandemic ends. We need leaders who understand that.
