Addressing racism as a public health crisis
Stand Against Racism

About the Event

Public health is — and always has been — central to racial justice work.

In this virtual town hall event, Addressing Racism as a Public Health Crisis on Thursday, April 22 at 3 pm ET,  YWCA USA will convene a panel of trailblazers who have been central to declaring and addressing racism as a public health crisis.

Join us as we discuss the connections between racism and public health outcomes, how to implement public health practices to effectively identify and address racial injustice in our communities, and community engagement and public policy strategies to advance racial equity through a public health lens.

Register today for a powerful event uplifting the voices of public health professionals, advocates, and trailblazers doing the work to improve the future for people of color!
