A Better Wake Town Hall: Health Equity (Raleigh Chamber of Commerce)
Town Hall on Health Equity and its role in the Blueprint to Dismantle Systemic Racism
A Better Wake acknowledges that those who have been historically underserved, underrepresented, and marginalized experience a different quality of life in our region that is rooted in systemic racism. These community meetings bring together community leaders, Chamber members, and experts to share ideas and curate a realistic and actionable path to create change for black and brown residents. Areas of focus are criminal justice, economic mobility, educational equity, and health equity. For more information, visit abetterwake.com/blueprint.
