Embrace Race Webinar: What the COVID-19 Crisis Tells Us about Structural Racism on 4/16

5:30-6:30pm on April 16, 2020

Even as COVID-19 leaves its mark across the length and breadth of the United States, we know that some communities are being hit harder than others. The overrepresentation of Black and Brown people among COVID victims in New York City has received lots of attention because of the huge numbers involved, but the pattern repeats itself almost everywhere we have the data to document it. Join us for a conversation  about why Black and Latinx communities are suffering disproportionately, why this pattern of racialized vulnerability is so painfully familiar, and what we might do to disrupt it. Sign up, spread the word, and bring your questions and insights.
