Join HopeWorks for a special virtual screening of The Color of Care.

This film provides firsthand and historical accounts demonstrating how racism permeates health care in America, and how the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated systemic negligence that cost countless lives.

Following the screening, we will discuss the film and racial health disparities in America.

Racism is a Serious Threat to the Public’s Health

According to the CDC, the data show that racial and ethnic minority groups, throughout the United States, experience higher rates of illness and death across a wide range of health conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, asthma, and heart disease, when compared to their White counterparts. Additionally, the life expectancy of non-Hispanic/Black Americans is four years lower than that of White Americans.
