Virtual Town Hall: Racial Justice and the Healthcare System

The Olympia City Council will host a Virtual Town Hall on “Racial Justice and the Healthcare System,” on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 4 p.m. The Town Hall is the third in a series of four, weekly virtual town hall meetings for the public focused on racial justice and the justice system, economic opportunity, the healthcare system and the education system.

The moderated panel includes Dr. Benjamin Danielson, Chair, Governor’s Interagency Council on Health Disparities; Sheila Capestany, King County Strategic Advisor on Youth and Children; Chris Porter, Nurse Practitioner; Dr. Frederick Chancellor, Kaiser Permanente.

The goal of the Virtual Town Halls is to provide a safe gathering space for the community to learn and understand the issues at the center of institutional racism and the opportunities for positive change driven by the Black Lives Matter movement.

Attendees will be able to submit questions live through a moderator during the event. Residents can register to attend the Aug. 6 Healthcare System Town Hall through this link:
