Structural Racism and Public Health: How to Talk to Policymakers and Community Members
November 28, 2023
3:00 pm ET; 12:00 pm PT
Cities are vibrant hubs of cultural and ethnic diversity, economic opportunities, and civic engagement. Yet these communities also endure complex health equity challenges. Many barriers to good health are rooted in structural racism — an unjust system of laws, procedures, and beliefs that cement racial and ethnic inequity. A critical step in addressing these inequities will be learning how to communicate effectively about them with members of our communities and policymakers. During this webinar from the Public Health Communications Collaborative, expert panelists will share key findings from their research on policy-oriented and public-oriented communications about structural racism and public health.
Session topics will address:
Public health communicators will leave the session with actionable strategies and new resources to leverage across audiences.
