As you are aware, the Maryland Lawyers Alliance for Race Equity and Human Rights has been organizing a series of brown bag lunches to explore the racial and human rights dimensions embedded in a variety of substantive legal areas – Criminal Justice, Housing, Equitable Development, Work/Employment, and Lending/Banking. The next Brown Bag will explore the intersection of race and health, and some of the initiatives focused on addressing racial and ethnic and disparities in health outcomes.
