Anti-Racism Advocacy & Consumer Perspectives

We know that anti-racism work is critical to ending homelessness, but how do we go from acknowledging systemic racism to actually doing something about it? In this “coffee chat”, attendees will hear from policy professionals and a consumer leader about the Council’s consumer story-telling project on the impact of racism on health and on incorporating the consumer perspective in advocacy. Examples of tangible actions at the state, local, and federal level that are applicable to homeless health care organizations will be shared. Join us and come with questions on how we can center anti-racism in our advocacy work.
