Event Information

Uprisings across the country are bringing attention to the injustices of police brutality and systemic racism. But how do movements like Medicare for All meet this moment, especially in the time of COVID-19? In this series, we'll speak to activists and organizers fighting at the intersection of healthcare and Black liberation.

Tuesday night's panel #CareNotCops will focus on the movement to defund the police, the need to reinvest in Black health, and the health consequences of the prison industrial complex, and the need for transformative & healing justice.

Moderated by Melissa Watkins, Afrosocialists LA

Jeanna Harris, RN
Greg Akili, Black Lives Matter - LA
