COVID and the Black Community: Session 1

New America Indianapolis and The Indianapolis Recorder are both committed to ensuring that the perspectives of Black Midwesterners are represented and engaged in solving public problems. The COVID-19 outbreak is impacting all Americans but it will, quite simply, impact Black America differently. Systemic barriers and racism have set the stage — we cannot respond to the crisis without facing those barriers explicitly and as a community.

Join us for “COVID and the Black Community” a weekly online community conversation series, co-hosted by New America and the Recorder, and featuring local and national experts and resources. The first in the series will be Tuesday March 31 from 2:00-3:00PM EST and will ask, “How are vulnerable community members getting timely, accurate information in times of crisis?”

Registration is free and open to all.
