The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the historical issues of social injustice and structural racism. In response, a number of organizations hosted webinars and learning communities discussing health equity and its relationship to the substance misuse prevention field and the implementation of best practices and programs. As we move further into 2021, it’s important to remember that these issues have NOT changed. Our work is NOT done.
This listening session series is designed for two audiences:
Part 1) Prevention practitioners who are in leadership positions; and
Part 2) All other prevention professionals working in the field of prevention. The purpose of the sessions is to create a space to truly evaluate the role of prevention professionals in addressing structural racism and in supporting people of color.
Feel free to attend one or both listening sessions. Come prepared to share your thoughts and engage in meaningful discussion.
Community and state-level prevention practitioners, tribes, allied health partners and community members located in the Pacific Southwest states and jurisdictions of American Samoa, Arizona, California, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau.
