Collective Action Strategies for Advancing Health Equity: Addressing Root Causes of Pain and Despair

Black, Brown, Indigenous and Immigrant populations have suffered disproportionate rates of hospitalization and death from COVID-19. The death of George Floyd reiterated the need to address racial justice and equity in our sector. This confluence of racial injustice and health inequities are propelling philanthropic solutions grounded in collective action and led by community voice. This session will present a collective action framework and real time examples of how foundations can foster sustainable systems change.
