On July 12, 2021, journalists Richard Weiss and Leyla King, who contributed to a Pulitzer Center-supported project on the topic, and St. Louis resident Misha Marshall, who was featured in the reporting, gathered virtually for a conversation with moderator and Pulitzer Center Outreach Assistant Kayla Edwards to discuss how St. Louis’ most vulnerable neighborhoods were weathering the pandemic.

The project will follow different families throughout the duration of the pandemic, publishing a new chapter of their stories each month.
