Nov 4th, 6pm: High Stakes: Healthcare Reform and Communities of Color

Organization:
Women of Color Policy Network, New York University

Description:
Date: November 4, 2009
Time: 6:00 - 7:30 pm
Location: NYU, Rudin Forum, 2nd Floor Conference Room, 

295 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012

People of color and low-income individuals are over-represented among those without health insurance. It is estimated that 19% of African-Americans and 30% of Latinos are without health insurance. Healthcare reform is issue number one for the Administration. And it should be a priority for communities of color as well.

Join us for this provocative town hall meeting with leading experts and community leaders as we discuss the current proposals on the table and the impact they will have on communities of color, strategies for creating inclusive healthcare reform and how current proposals can begin to alleviate health disparities in low-income communities.

Discussants:
Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas - National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health
Cara James, Ph.d - Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation
Maya Wiley - Center for Social Inclusion
Miriam Yeung - National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum (NAPAWF)
