The Role of Racism in a Pandemic| November 11 | 6:00PM CDT

The COVID-19 pandemic presents us with a live case study on how racism and racist practices, not race, have made historically marginalized communities more vulnerable to the morbidity and mortality of the coronavirus. Our distinguished panelists will share their perspectives on how the Black, Latinx, Native American, and Asian communities have been impacted by Covid-19. A moderated discussion will be followed by Q&A.
