Description

We know that before this pandemic arrived, not everyone had the same opportunity to live a long and healthy life. The COVID-19 crisis has clearly demonstrated these realities, as communities of color are experiencing a disproportionately high number of confirmed coronavirus cases and rate of death from the virus.

During this webinar, we will explore how COVID-19 is exposing existing disparities experienced by Black communities, the historical context, institutional and systemic racism, and how communities can begin to address these disparities now and during recovery with policy, systems, and environmental change.
