We’re proud to announce the release of an in-depth new digital chapter of LAB’s book Voices of Latin America. ‘The Covid 19 Pandemic: Survival’, is written by Emily Gregg and available on our website to all Patreon subscribers.
The arrival of Covid-19 in Latin America devastated the region. The pandemic exacerbated pre-existing issues such as gender-based violence, violations of Indigenous rights, and unequal access to information and education. Despite the adversities, the Coronavirus pandemic has also shown the strength and determination of communities struggling for a fairer society. Across the region, there are calls to build a more just economy and society than the one that was left behind.
For this new chapter, Emily Gregg spoke to activists, social leaders, artists, and educators across the continent to learn how they survived the pandemic and supported their communities.
The full text is available to LAB’s Patreon subscribers and will be included in the next edition of the ‘Voices of Latin America book’. On the Voices book website you can also find articles, videos, and information about LAB events linked to this and all other chapters.
