State of Affairs Examines the Pandemic’s Impact on Racial and Social Inequities

Steve Adubato speaks with Dena Mottola Jaborska, Executive Director, New Jersey Citizen Action, about the ways the pandemic exacerbated racial and social inequities in underserved communities, the importance of documented and undocumented immigrants in New Jersey, and what still needs to take place to help fight social, racial, and economic justice across the state.

Steve Adubato asks Jaborska to define economic justice. She responds, “economic justice could be anything from fair wages or living wages so that a person doesn’t have to work three jobs to support their family. It could also be equal pay, so fairness against discrimination so men and women make the same amount. White people, black people, brown people, nobody’s being discriminated against for their race. Those are some aspects of economic justice, there are many.”
