About the Event
This event is hosted by YWCA USA in conjunction with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus and the Native American Caucus.
This virtual briefing will highlight legislation currently pending in Congress that would recognize and address racism as a public health threat. Join YWCA USA and our network of more than 200 local associations in 45 states and DC to learn why passing this legislation is an important first step toward greater racial equity and more effective policy. Together, we can deepen our understanding of racism’s impact on public health, and advance policy solutions that enhance coordination across sectors, invest in prevention, and create opportunity for all.
