COVID-19 Decision-Making Framework for State Policymakers

Based on our work with states to shape their responses to the immediate and long-term recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, CLASP developed the following framework that underscores the need for policymakers to be thoughtful and use racial equity as a central consideration when making decisions. This decision-making framework reflects the practical urgency and constraints states are experiencing along with the values we believe should be at the core of how states respond. It emerges from our relationships with state and community leaders, impacted people, and advocates.
