Coronavirus: COVID-19 is officially a pandemic. The NAACP is hosting an Emergency Tele-Town Hall about the Coronavirus and its impact on communities of color.

In the United States alone, more than 2,000 cases of COVID-19 have been reported, and because of the racial and economic inequities embedded within our country’s infrastructure, the effects of the Coronavirus have been compounded for Black and Brown communities. Already we’ve seen many equity and justice challenges that must be addressed before they worsen and cause further damage.

The Emergency Tele-Town Hall will feature panelists who will speak to how we can lessen the negative repercussions of this pandemic on our communities.

Our panelists include:

  • Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams

  • Senator Kamala Harris

  • Congresswoman Robin Kelly

  • La June Montgomery Tabron, President & CEO, W.K. Kellogg Foundation

  • Dr. Rich Besser, President & CEO, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

  • Dr. Jerry Young, President, National Baptist Convention

  • Rev. Traci Blackmon, United Church of Christ

  • Nicolette Louissaint, PhD, Executive Director, Healthcare Ready
