Ring the Alarm: Surviving COVID-19’s Economic Impact While Black

May 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On this webinar you will hear from Black economists in the U.S. talking about the dramatic impact of the COVID-19 crisis on Black workers and the economy.

Unemployment is staggering. Inequality is on the rise. Black workers and communities are hurting deeply. Our economists will be talking about the CARES Act, job losses, the need for a new stimulus and how to build towards a new more equitable economy.

The Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine, Morehouse College International Comparative Labor Studies and the Health Equity Cypher have come together to holistically put a name, face and a narrative to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the Black community, launching the Ring the Alarm Series.

We need to hear from OUR experts from across the country and discuss what’s happening, why it is happening, and share best practices and possible solutions in labor and health to end this pandemic and prepare for our future.

This webinar will feature:

  • Jessica Fulton, Vice President, The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies,
  • Janelle Jones, Managing Director of Policy and Research Groundwork Collaborative,
  • William E. Spriggs, Chief Economist to the AFL-CIO and Professor in the Department of Economics at Howard University

This panel will be moderated by Marc D. Bayard, Fellow, Institute for Policy Studies.
