*Civil rights activist Najee Ali calls for California Governor Gavin Newsom to immediately establish an executive order for a statewide collection of racial and ethnic data of COVID-19 victims.
The collection and release of racial and ethnic data need to be an important priority for public health officials. Data can help LA County and the state of California advise the Governor’s office and federal government to decide where to focus their attention and resources to help end the coronavirus.
“As the fight against this global pandemic continues, African Americans will be at greater risk to contract Covaid 19. If a strategic and laser-like focus isn’t targeted specifically to the African-American with messaging that is culturally relevant.” – Najee Ali
