We’re hosting a virtual town hall to discuss the inequalities in the U.S. health care system that disproportionately impact people of color. And we want your stories to help shape that conversation. ⁣politi.co/2GS8Lv2
Medical professionals, patients and advocates – head to the link below to submit a 45-second video to tell us what you’ve seen and what actionable steps you think society could take to help reduce racial disparities in health care. politi.co/2GS8Lv2
If you submit a video, we may feature it in our town hall and invite you to join our private Zoom discussion afterward to continue the conversation with our moderators, speakers and a small group of other readers. politi.co/2GS8Lv2
P.S. This is part of our series of virtual town halls about systemic racial inequality in America. Last month, we talked about education. This month, it’s health care. Next on the list: the economy, and housing. confrontinginequality.splashthat.com
