Public Health Anti-Racism Forum

Thank you for your interest in Public Health Anti-Racism Forum. Due to an overwhelming response, the Forum has reached capacity. To find out other ways to get involved, please contact healthycampus@ucr.edu.

In response to the current civil unrest brought to light by recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the many others who have suffered at the hand of oppression, UCR Healthy Campus in partnership with the Well is establishing a Public Health Anti-Racism subcommittee dedicated to addressing racism as a public health issue.

The committee will:

  • Explore and identify the current climate as it relates to health inequities, racism, and public health.
  • Establish relationships with a wide variety of key stakeholders and engage them in ongoing efforts.
  • Identify solutions and make recommendations for a more just and equitable campus community where health and social justice are prioritized and institutionalized.

Our mission is to continue ongoing efforts and initiatives to create a culture of health and well-being that recognizes the systemic oppression and racism that affects structurally vulnerable populations and celebrates diversity, strives for health equity, and healthy working and learning environments.

We invite you to engage in a discussion on ways our campus community can create antiracist environments. Your participation is important to inform and shape the direction of the subcommittee. Together we will identify the needs, resources, and strategies to build a healthier and more equitable campus community. This forum will provide a space for our campus community to identify ways to address systemic racism and move toward addressing the structural and social determinants of health.
 
We are pleased to invite you to a virtual forum that will include an opportunity to voice your opinions, break out into smaller discussion groups, and brainstorm actionable recommendations and next steps. 

Please R.S.V.P. at the Public Health Ani-Racism Forum registration site by August 14, 2020.

This forum is open to UCR faculty, staff and students.

Thursday, August 20 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm
