Event description
Bringing together stakeholders to discuss strategies to address the systematic racism and structural violence that impede health & safety.

About this Event

The California Initiative for Health Equity and Action (Cal-IHEA), in co-sponsorship with PolicyLink, the California Legislative Black Caucus, and the Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color, is excited to host a policy briefing entitled, “Addressing Structural Determinants of Youth Development for Safe and Healthy Communities."

The purpose of the briefing is to convene an expert panel of University of California faculty to present research evidence that can inform future State policy and practice that promotes safety and wellbeing in all California communities. The California Initiative for a Health Equity and Action (Cal-IHEA) aims to facilitate productive discussion of innovative strategies/policies to address the systematic racism and structural violence that impede health, safety, and social justice for Black, Latinx, Native American and Indigenous youth in California.

Marc Philpart, Managing Director at PolicyLink and principal coordinator for the Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, will facilitate a discussion about the ways in which the State can advance policies that support systems of healing and well-being for young people and communities of color in California. The interactive panel presentation and discussion will focus on the opportunities and challenges related to promoting health, community safety and law enforcement accountability, while expanding the health equity advances that California has made through the California Act to Save Lives, The Racial Identity and Profiling Act of 2015, and similar legislation.
