Brought to you by the Colorado Public Health Association and the Colorado Society for Public Health Educators.

Personal and institutional bias and racism are a daily reality in the United States, and the public health implications are resounding. White Coats for Black Lives (WC4BL) is a growing community of health professionals advancing racial equality and health equity. In this webinar, WC4BL representatives will take a historical look at these issues and explain the contemporary context for the Black Lives Matter movement. We will also examine what makes a movement a success or failure, and then discuss how health professionals can make a meaningful contribution to this effort.
