Covid-19 impacts different groups of people in very different ways. For some it has been, for the most part, an inconvenience. For others, it has been nothing short of catastrophic. No group has been harder hit than those living in Long Term Care facilities, where thousands have became ill and many have died sad and lonely deaths.  Other groups of people have also suffered greatly, for example, those who are old, poor, homeless, new immigrants, or have a disability. Not surprisingly, those who were members of marginalized and devalued groups before Covid-19 are the ones who, by and large, have been hardest hit. Being devalued invariably puts people at greater risk of all kinds of bad things happening to them. The greater the devaluation, the greater the risk. This phenomenon is not specific to Covid -19. Given that this is so, what can be done that will make a positive difference to the lives of those who are devalued?
