This event featured Congressman Brian Higgins, representing New York’s 26th congressional district, who discussed what to expect from recent economic stimulus laws, what’s going on in Washington and New York, and how to stay healthy and safe from the Coronavirus. Participants asked about why some people are getting stimulus debit cards instead of direct deposit, what is being done to address the disparate impact of the Coronavirus in communities of color, and what future stimulus packages could look like.
