Legacies of Racism Event
On February 24, 2022, UCAN and IRRPP held a discussion of how Chicago’s most vulnerable populations have been impacted during the last two years of the COVID-19 crisis. This virtual panel elevated the voices of community leaders in a conversation about how policy makers and the community have responded and what comes next and shared findings from IRRPP's report on racial disparities in the city’s COVID-19 response. Panelists were Darlene Oliver Hightower (President and CEO of the Metropolitan Planning Council), LaDarius Curtis (Senior Director of Community Engagement and Health at West Side United), Claire Laurier Decoteau (Professor of Sociology at UIC), and moderator Claude A. Robinson, Jr. (Executive Vice President of External Affairs & Diversity at UCAN).
