Disparities in Minority Communities
A Black History Month event, hosted by the Kendall Campus African Heritage / Black History Committee

Thursday, February 11, 2021, 10:00-11:00 am

 Health disparities, food injustice, social injustice and environmental racism in the United States of America have disproportionately impacted African American and Latino communities.  In partnership with the Sustainability Committee, the panel will explore the intersection of these critical socio-economic factors to understand the fragile state of these communities. The question is where do we go from here now that the pandemic has revealed the truth?  Panelists include Ms. Asha Walker (Founder of “Health in the Hood”), Dr. Kilian C. Ashad-Bishop (Director of College Access for Breakthrough Miami), and Ms. Zelalem Adefris (VP of Policy & Advocacy at Catalyst Miami).
