HEALTH JUSTICE & EQUITY TRACK

This track brings together those who wish to develop skills and strategies for addressing health inequities. Why are some populations at greater risk of illnesses and preventable deaths than others? Health disparities adversely impact groups of people who traditionally lack access to important health resources because of systemic discrimination and inequality based on social identifiers like age, gender, sexuality and race. It presents a deeper analysis and exploration of the causative factors that contribute to health disparities and what we can do about them.

Coordinators of this track are LeShonda Wallace and Joseph Conway.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Tracks are looking for hands-on workshops, strategy sessions, and meet-ups that share stories, skills and best practices. Your session/workshop should be engaging and interactive. Including people who are direct stakeholders or who are directly impacted by the issue strongly aligns with Free Movement's goals of building grassroots power, and should be encompassed as often as possible.

Contact info@workingnarratives.org with questions and comments.

Sessions must be accessible to all bodies, genders, and ages by creating a space that is inclusive and welcoming.
