Racism denial is a huge barrier to achieving health and social equity in both the United States and the United Kingdom.

In this lecture, Professor Jones will share several of her allegories on "race" and racism to equip attendees to understand and communicate four key messages:

  • Racism exists
  • Racism is a system
  • Racism saps the strength of the whole society
  • We can act to dismantle racism
