We are moving through the Action Series, posing the question: knowing what we know, how do we move forward to build stronger, more equitable communities for all of us?
Join us for our third conversation in the Action Series as we explore how the health care system in America can serve all, equitably–especially the people who are currently not covered.
THE ACTION SERIES: The Time Is Now
Thursday, October 1, 2020
2:30 pm ET/1:30 pm CT
Now that we’ve established the lasting impacts of medical racism in the U.S. health care system, we will discuss how to redress them within the health system in the U.S.
In this conversation, our panelists will explore the restoration of trust between Black patients and those who provide their health care. They will explore systems of medical education that train providers to offer care that works for and serves everyone.
How can we ensure that Black patients and other patients of color receive respectful, highest-quality care? What kind of work do we have to do to make the system one that Black people can trust with their health?

Earlier in 2020, E Pluribus Unum launched Truth. Action. Reconciliation., a series of conversations that bring together some of our country’s great thinkers, activists, and leaders on race and equity. The focus of the series is truth, action and reconciliation–ultimately, putting forward a vision for essential systemic reforms to shape long-term change, with the value of racial and economic equity at its core.
In July, we started with the Truth Series, reviewing the past and exploring how we got where we are on criminal justice, health equity, economic opportunity, and democracy.
