Addressing Racism as a Public Health Crisis | April 22

Public health is — and always has been — central to racial justice work.

In the virtual event, Addressing Racism as a Public Health Crisis on Thursday, April 22 at 3 pm ET, join YWCA USA as we host a panel of trailblazers who have been central to declaring and addressing racism as a public health crisis.

Join us as we discuss the connections between racism and public health outcomes, how to implement public health practices to effectively identify and address racial injustice in our communities, and community engagement and public policy strategies to advance racial equity through a public health lens.

Register today for a powerful event uplifting the voices of public health professionals, advocates, and trailblazers doing the work to improve the future for people of color!

Stand Against Racism

Stand Against Racism provides the opportunity for communities across the United States to find an issue or cause that inspires them to take a #StandAgainstRacism and to unite their voices to educate, advocate, and promote racial justice.

YWCA USA’s 15th annual Stand Against Racism campaign will take place April 22 – 25, 2021.  We invite YWCAs and allied groups to focus their events and organizing on the myriad of racial justice issues that impact the health and safety of communities of color. Most importantly, we invite you to explore how From Declarations to Change: Addressing Racism as a Public Health Crisis can advance the work of justice in your community and empower people of color.
