30] –Americans for Financial Reform [] is hosting a webinar to find out to fight back against PPP profiteers on Wed., June 1 at 1 PM ET. Six months into the coronavirus pandemic, the disproportionate impact of job losses on minority and low-wage workers was well-documented with Black and Latino communities facing the brunt of unemployment and a slower jobs recovery. At the same time, Black and women-owned businesses were disproportionately shut out of the early rounds of funding provided by the Paycheck Protection Program, which was supposed to support small businesses through the pandemic but failed to ensure that the businesses most in need received an equitable distribution of funds.  As minimum and low-wage workers were being deemed “essential” and forced to work without adequate personal protection equipment (PPE), major corporations and luxury brands were taking billions of dollars in government aid they didn’t need and spent it on stock buybacks, stockholder dividends, and executive bonuses.  Join the webinar to hear about the report, Lessons Learned from the PPP: A Way Forward for an Equitable COVID Recovery, which looks over the successes and failures of the Paycheck Protection Program developed by Congress to help small businesses and their workers survive the pandemic.  RSVP at
