This report is a continuation of the “Local Needs Among Utah’s Multicultural Communities During the COVID-19 Pandemic” report released by the Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs (MCA) in April of 2020. It is the result of a collaborative effort between MCA and the University of Utah – College of Architecture & Planning. Information provided in the report was collected by university students who conducted interviews with frontline service providers in order to gather data about the experiences and challenges that Utah’s multicultural communities are facing. The purpose of this report is to provide further and ongoing insight into the immediate needs and unique barriers faced by marginalized communities during the COVID-19 outbreak to inform state leaders and solve concerns through a systemic and equity-centered approach. Our hope is that the qualitative data discussed in this report will elevate the importance of actively listening to marginalized communities and underscore the importance of equity in times of crisis.
