Symposium organizers note that the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected and harmed people of color. The event will explore these harms and continue ongoing conversations about the racial inequity that COVID-19 has exposed, exacerbated, and created.

The panels will cover a wide range of issues related to the pandemic and racial inequity in health care, environmental justice, criminal justice, poverty and finance, civil liberties, and education.
