This event is the first in a webinar series hosted by Public Health Awakened.

Public Health Awakened is a group of public health professionals organizing for health, equity, and justice, formed in response to the Trump administration. We work with social justice movements on strategic and collective action to resist the threats faced by communities of color and low-income communities and to create a world in which everyone can thrive. We are calling on public health nonprofits, government agencies, academics, and others to courageously step up and use their power — their evidence, expertise, voice, and resources — to protect and promote people’s lives and communities. Join us.
