Race, Criminal Justice and Health, Presented in Collaboration with Reuters
Friday, February 6, 2015, 12:30-1:30pm, The Leadership Studio, 10th Floor Kresge Building, 677 Huntington Ave., Boston
The focus on racial injustice in the U.S. – particularly the effect of race on criminal justice – has been in the public spotlight following the tragic deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Eric Garner on Staten Island, and Tamir Rice in Cleveland during encounters with law enforcement. While these inequities play out in numerous areas, health and well-being is one sector in which minority groups are dramatically and disproportionally affected. This Forum event will examine how disparities within the law and the criminal justice system negatively affect health — as well as how the role of race interacts with neighborhood environments, educational and employment opportunities, public policy, and other factors to lead to poorer health.
