New America Indianapolis and The Indianapolis Recorder are both committed to ensuring that the perspectives of Black Midwesterners are represented and engaged in solving public problems. The COVID-19 outbreak is impacting all Americans but it will, quite simply, impact Black America differently. Systemic barriers and racism have set the stage — we cannot respond to the crisis without facing those barriers explicitly and as a community.
Join us for “COVID and the Black Community” a weekly online community conversation series, co-hosted by New America and the Recorder, and featuring local and national experts and resources. The second in the series will be a workshop on Tuesday April 7 from 2:00-3:30PM EST: “How Black Business Owners Can Weather the COVID Storm.” Local leaders will discuss challenges facing and share resources explicitly supporting Black-owned businesses during and following the COVID-19 crisis.
Registration is free and open to all.
