View panelists’ recommendations from the popular NC TraCS Institute session “Race, Law Enforcement, and Black Males: Actions Required to Shift the Paradigm” to learn ways to individually and collectively drive change.
The escalation of events igniting recent civil unrest highlights the economic, health care, social, and criminal justice disparities that Black Americans and racial minorities experience daily across the U.S. Many medical associations and health science scholars, now more than ever, openly echo this undeniable truth: racism is a public health issue. UNC-Chapel Hill’s North Carolina Translational Clinical and Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute agrees and seeks to participate in raising consciousness for action that addresses systemic racism.
In this webinar, five esteemed guest speakers acknowledged the challenges brought by racism and described experiences Black males live through that others do not. They identified the strengths and importance of law enforcement, and shared strategies to support the relationship between Black males and law enforcement.
