A panel of human rights advocates, educators and researchers will explore:
The impact of the rising hate and fascism on the health and wellbeing of our communities.
Research on the impact of discrimination, marginalization and exclusion as Social Determinants of Health (SDOH).
What are the ways in which we rise up, resist and build resilience? What does self-care look like and what strategies can we share?
What is the responsibility of our elected leaders, public institutions and organizations in opposing fascist rhetoric and intervening to stop the spread of hate in our city.
