YWCA STAND AGAINST RACISM panel discussion
May 27th – 9:00 to 10:00 am
Join us as we explore and discuss local health disparities and policy efforts you can support!
Centuries of structural racism in our country have had a profound negative impact on communities of color, affecting people’s access to quality housing, education, food, transportation, political power, and other social determinants of health. In response, Cincinnati and Hamilton County have both officially declared racism a public health crisis. This is a powerful first step!
Understanding and addressing systemic racism from this public health perspective is crucial to eliminating racial and ethnic inequities, and to improving opportunity and well-being across communities. Our local experts will provide a clearer understanding and tools you can use to work toward a more equitable world.
