People of color and low-income individuals are over-represented among those without health insurance. It is estimated that 19 percent of African-Americans and 30 percent of Latinos are without health insurance. Healthcare reform is issue number one for the Administration. And it should be a priority for communities of color as well. 

Join us for this provocative town hall meeting with leading experts and community leaders as we discuss the current proposals on the table and the impact they will have on communities of color, strategies for creating inclusive healthcare reform and how current proposals can begin to alleviate health disparities in low-income communities.
