NEW YORK - On Thursday, June 11, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host a virtual forum focused on the perspectives and needs of immigrant communities during the COVID-19 crisis.
The event, titled "The Immigrant Experience during COVID-19," marks the third installment of the Fed and Main Street series, which convenes leaders from the business, community development, nonprofit and policy sectors to discuss the effects of the COVID-19 crisis and efforts to support the recovery.
Through a series of panel discussions with advocates and community stakeholders, this event will explore:
- The experiences and challenges of immigrant populations during the pandemic;
- Efforts by local municipalities, grassroots organizations, nonprofit groups and the private sector to tailor solutions to address financial and economic disparities; and
- The pandemic's effects on immigrant families’ financial wellbeing and its impact on the flow of remittances across borders.
The event is open to the public and the press, though space is limited. Members of the public can register here. Members of the press who wish to attend should contact Desmond Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
