Join us for part two of the Environmental Justice and Racial Equity Course: Public Health! The video for this session comes out on Monday, and the group meeting to discuss this content will be held on Thursday, July 2nd, from 5:00pm-6:00pm. At this meeting, we will facilitate constructive dialogue around the entirety of the week two content, diving deep into the racial disparities within public health, the healthcare system, and specifically as they are related to environmental racism. Monday's video release is in storytelling format, a short compilation of smaller videos, images, art, news articles and slides, with the purpose of weaving together smaller narratives to reveal a larger story which represents a larger, often unseen and unjust systemic order. At this discussion group, individuals will be invited to move beyond their indoctrination within these systems, and instead invoke their imagination to design solutions on all fronts- artistic, scientific, historical, medical, etc.- that carry the potential for a systemic shift in public health.
