RACE to Be Human – Special Virtual Screening with Health Care Leaders Panel

Please join HealthAdvocateX for a special screening of RACE to Be Human, a documentary that explores racism, its impact on the mental health of children and adults, and what can be done to change it. Created for schools, communities, and corporations, RACE to Be Human addresses the apprehension and confusion so many of us feel when it comes to talking about race and racism. The film examines micro-aggressions, allyship, and the role of social media. It also shares how we can participate and build empathy through conversations at home, work, and school. The program includes strategies and tips to check ourselves and others while inspiring self-reflection so that as individuals we are more.

We will follow this important movie with a Panel discussion from Health Equity and Health Advocacy Experts who will explore how race impacts health, healthcare and health equity.


  1. Understand terms such as Race, Racism, Privilege, Prejudice, Power and Oppression.
  2. Define the four I’s of Oppression (Ideological, Institutional, Interpersonal, & Internalized).
  3. How is Health Equity related to race and racism in the health care system.
  4. Identify specific strategies for advocates to address issues of race and racism in the practice of health advocacy
