At the start of the March 2020 stay-at-home order, Families In Schools (FIS) staff and six Parent Warriors (parent leaders who are deeply engaged in education advocacy efforts) cocreated a survey to learn about the effects of the pandemic on vulnerable working families in Los Angeles. The survey results provide a snapshot of how L.A. families are adapting to home learning, coping with mental health, and securing basic needs. FIS followed up with some of the parents surveyed and the Parent Warriors who interviewed families. Click on any of the images below to hear their stories.
