Community Read



Community Read has gone virtual!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to meet in person for our final two Community Read sessions on Battling Over Birth: Black Women and the Maternal Health Care Crisis (Available on Amazon | Official Site)

We will be wrapping up the Spring 2020 Community Read series with a virtual conversation via Zoom on June 2nd. Our focus will be on the book's Executive Summary as well as relating what we've read to the current public health climate.

Only registered participants will receive a Zoom link. RSVP/Registration closes 12 hours prior to the event.
