Join us as we hear from social justice movement leaders and advocates for racial health equity.  The speakers will share their thoughts on the need for activism in our communities to ultimately effect positive change.  The themes of racism, gun violence, health access and equity are intersecting our lives more prominently day-by-day. Together, let’s determine a way forward.
