About this Event
UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on Tuesday, September 19th at 4PM for a discussion called “Colonial and Neo-colonial Inputs, Intentional Socioeconomic Outputs.” The talk will feature Khalil Ferguson, President of United CORE Alliance, author, and Richmond, CA native.
Khalil was selected as a “Top 25 Black Change Maker” by the Sacramento Bee’s Equity Lab, and a 2021 Rockwood Leadership Building Power Fellow. He brings a racial equity lens to his leadership as well as a passion to implement racial equity in his organizations, network, and community. Under Khalil’s leadership, the United CORE Alliance (UCA) has been instrumental in helping the city of Sacramento in forming its cannabis equity policies. Khalil is also President of the Black Alumni Chapter at Sacramento State and a student at McGeorge School of Law where he serves as the President of the Black Law Student’s Association and the Business Law Association.
UCA is a non-profit organization with a mission to serve disadvantaged communities adversely impacted by the war on drugs. UCA also restores rights of formerly incarcerated individuals through the records expungement process through a partnership with the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development and the City of Sacramento.
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.
