UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on April 22 at 12:00 PM for a discussion called Nothing About Us Without Us: Why We Need to Center Black Birthing People in Public Health via Zoom. The panel will feature Alexis Cobbins, MSW and Solaire Spellen, MPH. Alexis is the Executive Director at the California Preterm Birth Initiative and she has over a decade of experience working with and for Black women and their families through her work at the San Francisco Department of Public Health and the San Francisco Human Services Agency. Solaire is the Associate Director of the California Preterm Birth Initiative at UCSF and as part of the executive leadership team, she is committed to advancing racial equity and birth justice in partnership with community.
This event was planned by a diverse group of UCSF staff who organized in response to the ongoing racial injustices. The goal of the UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice monthly speaker series is to promote critical thinking and action around intersectional structures of power, privilege, and racial oppression in clinical care, education, and beyond. We will continue to highlight the efforts of community antiracism activists.
