This edition of Equity Digest is a call to action for school community stakeholders to work alongside minoritized students and families (people with identities such as LGBTQ+, non-binary, women, disabled, non-Christian, people of Color, and/or emergent multilingual individuals) as they experience compounding inequities during this historic period of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here, we discuss inequities related to online/distance learning, and how schools and school communities can serve as resources and supports for minoritized students. Having these ongoing discussions lend themselves to keeping pace with the growing body of knowledge in relation to COVID-19 and schooling.
