COVID, White Supremacy, Black Women’s Concerns

In response to the latest events across the country and the world, on Thursday, June 18 our women panelists will address COVID in the context of white supremacy and police brutality, major problems of pandemic proportions.  

We will discuss these issues with a focus on individual, peer and family relations, and community organizing. Our overarching theme, Identity and Vulnerabilities, will be used to frame the discussion.
