#NYCHealthEquity – Advancing Racial and Social Justice

Join the Region 2 Public Health Training Center during their monthly Log-in2Learn webinar series on March 6th from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET. This month the webinar welcomes Dr. Aletha Maybank and will explore the following questions:
  • What role have institutions played in fostering, exacerbating and perpetuating racism and other forms of oppression? 
  • In what ways can an institution transform itself to become a multi-cultural, racial justice organization? What are the necessary steps?
  • How can institutions or organizations work with neighborhoods and communities to amplify their inherent power to heal together? What does it mean to acknowledge power and privilege with regards to ourselves and our institutions? What does it look like to cede power and employ meaningful community engagement?
  • What role do we have to leverage our power and privilege to embolden larger movements and coalitions seeking to name injustice and liberate oppressed groups? Both as individuals and within our institutions and organizations. Where does public health and social justice advocacy inherently intersect?
