Join the Conversation on Job Equity and COVID-19

The COVID-19 outbreak is making it clearer than ever how strongly public health and job equity issues coincide. While job equity will be one of three central issues at our Reinventing Our Communities 2020 conference (May 27–29), we are seeing an unprecedented level of public conversation right now, as many workers are faced with hazardous environments, forced to choose between health and income, or laid off with no safety net. We invite you to participate in the Twitter chat Job Equity and COVID-19: What Are We Learning? on April 1 at noon (ET). Hear from experts as we elevate local, implementable approaches to addressing job equity, economic insecurity, and the risks workers face in the wake of COVID-19 and beyond.

Some of our participants will include:
