The disproportionate effect of COVID19 on Black, Latinx and Native American people, is only the latest in a long string of known disparities in health, education and economic outcomes for communities of color. These inequities are so long standing that at times they seem unsurmountable. But when we work collectively, we can make big things happen. From examining the effects of systemic racism on children, to identifying specific steps and initiatives that participants can take to promote equity, this webinar is a call to action.
