Racism as a Public Health Crisis Discussion
Several communities, counties and states around the U.S. have adopted formal proclamations that recognize racism as a public health crisis. But what does that really mean for the people who experience racism each day in our country? How is our public health system addressing the practices that uphold racism as a barrier to health? The actions that precede and follow these declarations may be just as critical as the declarations themselves.
In this two-part discussion series, we will share and learn together how qualitative data can be used with local histories and contexts to identify ways in which racism is a public health crisis. In the second session, we will explore how communities have taken action to implement policies, strategies and actions that address racism as a public health crisis. We will create space to dialogue and share stories around experiencing oppression and racism and the change that resulted.
Bring your ideas, questions, and a desire to connect with other attendees. Please plan to join us for both sessions!

Session 1: Investigating qualitative data, local history and the context of structural racism in your community.
