Epidemic of Inequities

Epidemic of Inequities

Join us on June 11 from noon to 1 p.m. CDT for Understanding and Addressing the Epidemic of Inequities, a webinar analyzing the disparate impact of COVID-19 in Chicago’s black community and then exploring the role of all sectors in Chicago in addressing this epidemic.

We will open with a presentation of the Chicago Urban League’s incisive report, which details the structural inequities that have led blacks to be more likely to get and die from the virus. We will then speak with executives from the private, government, and social sectors to discuss the role of each in ensuring more equitable futures.
