The Disparities Solutions Center, the Multicultural Affairs Office, and the Center for Community Health Improvement have come together to host this year’s Annual YWCA Stand Against Racism Event. Please join us for a screening of the critically acclaimed 2012 documentary, The House I Live In, which recognizes drug abuse as a public health concern while also examining the disproportionate impact of the U.S. war on drugs on people and communities of color. The film segment will be followed by an audience discussion facilitated by Alexander R. Green, MD, MPH, Associate Director of the Disparities Solutions Center.
The Stand Against Racism™ is a movement that was initiated by the YWCA in 2008 to raise awareness and educate audiences on the racism that still exists in our communities. Organizations across the United States are invited to become Participating Sites by hosting their own "Stand." The objective of these "Stands" is to bring organizations around the nation together to unite and eliminate racism. We expect this event to be both educational and exciting.
Please RSVP here.
