Public Health Anti-Racism Forum
 Healthy Campus Public Health Anti-Racism Forum

August 20, 2020
1- 3:00 p.m.

In response to the current civil unrest brought to light by recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the many others who have suffered at the hand of oppression, UCR Healthy Campus in partnership with the Well is establishing a Public Health Anti-Racism subcommittee dedicated to addressing racism as a public health issue.

The committee will:

  • Explore and identify the current climate as it relates to health inequities, racism, and public health.
  • Establish relationships with a wide variety of key stakeholders and engage them in ongoing efforts.
  • Identify solutions and make recommendations for a more just and equitable campus community where health and social justice are prioritized and institutionalized.

Your participation is important to inform and shape the direction of the subcommittee. Together we will identify the needs, resources, and strategies to build a healthier and more equitable campus community. This forum will provide a space for our campus community to identify ways to address systemic racism and move toward addressing the structural and social determinants of health.

Please R.S.V.P. at the Public Health Ani-Racism Forum registration site by August 14, 2020.

This forum is open to UCR faculty, staff and students.
