Epidemic of Inequities

The broadcast discusses 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. Following this, executives from the private, government, and social sectors discussed the role of each in ensuring more equitable futures.
