Don't miss her interview with Imara Jones on the TransLash podcast about Native American and LGBTQ+ rights. - "More than 75 percent of health care workers fighting the coronavirus are women — many of them Black and Latina." Chabeli Carrazana and Barbara Rodriguez write about the women of color who are receiving the first COVID-19 vaccines, via The 19th. - This piece from The Root gives an inside look into the neglect that took place at a D.C. jail overrun with COVID-19.  Photo credit: Rod Lamkey/Pool via AP
