The Anti-Racism Task Force continues the work of becoming an antiracist community by offering a 1-day Health Equity Workshop on July 29th from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The health disparities in Kalamazoo County affect birth outcomes, life expectancy, disease and illness that parallels what is happening across the United States. Join both health care providers and recipients of health care in exploring how our institutions can identify and work towards becoming an anti-racist multicultural institution.
You can register for the Health Equity Workshop by contacting ISAAC at 269-341-4213 or email [email protected]. Again, it is July 29th from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Douglass Community Association, 1000 W. Paterson St. Kalamazoo, MI 49007. The cost for institutions is $40-$150. There are some scholarships available.
You are welcome to join our Anti-Racism Task Force meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. The next meeting is June 20th at 6:30 p.m. at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 247 West Lovell St., Kalamazoo, MI. We meet in the 1st floor library.
