Public health and public safety experts from across the country gather to discuss how enduring legacies of racial harm can explain the disparities in loss of life and mistrust of public authorities not just in violence prevention, but also specifically in the present public health crisis. The panel will discuss ways to understand and acknowledge harm in this new context. Experts will explore the roots of communities’ mistrust of medical authorities, as well as opportunities for building greater trust and legitimacy—and through that, more equitable outcomes in public health—with our nation’s most impacted people.
