On November 10-14th, thousands of public health professionals will convene for the American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting, themed Health Equity Now, in San Diego. Our panel is an alternative session, inspired by a resolution brought to the APHA Governing Council for the 2018 conference:

The beautiful Centro Cultural de la Raza is 10 minutes from the conference center where APHA is happening. We have chosen to hold this session outside of the conference complex in a community space to shift and decolonize the tone of the meeting, and to honor the ongoing trauma experienced by and movements led by community members and activists.
