Health Equity Series: The History of African Americans, Tobacco, and Racism
Please join Washington Breathes for the first session of our Health Equity Capacity-Building Series led by our partners at The Center for Black Health and Equity.
Understanding the history and context of commercial tobacco use and its disproportionate impacts on African Americans and other communities of color is critical to identifying ongoing inequities and industry tactics.
We offer a special invitation to individuals and representatives of communities who are most impacted by commercial tobacco use, industry targeting, and systemic racism. We acknowledge that you are living this experience. We hope that you will want to participate as our coalition learns, builds new relationships, and increases our competence and effectiveness in addressing inequities.
