“Systemic Racism: Disasters Expose It – How Do We Address It?”

May 13, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

As we have seen ourselves its often the case that disasters can disproportionately impact communities of color.  The most recent example, of course, is COVID-19 as these communities have suffered more cases and deaths, disproportionate socio-economic impacts and reduced vaccination rates.

For communities to recover equitably, we need to better understand the impact of racism, address root causes and explore how to best support these communities and the organizations that serve them before, during and after disasters.

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy is hosting a webinar titled “Systemic Racism: Disasters Expose It – How Do We Address It?” on Thursday, May 13 at 11 a.m. to look at how COVID-19 and other disasters make the presence of systemic racism more obvious. Speakers will share practical tips on how all of us can better assist communities of color as they respond to such crises.
