Building Community Power for Racial and Health Equity

Tue, Oct 5, 2021, 4:00 – 6:00 PM EDT

We are living in unprecedented times where parallel health, economic and racial justice crises call on us all to use our power to change systems that impact all of our day to day lives. Communities are building power to address ranging issues from housing instability for homeowners and renters to structural racism impacting who has access to and trusts COVID 19 vaccines. So what is community power? And why does community power matter to improve health? Learn from recent work to understand and define the diverse ways that communities are organizing to influence health. This will be an interactive conversation where we'll share recent health research and where we hope you'll bring your experiences and ideas to learn together!
