Under the Magnifying Glass: Inequity and Covid-19 — Tuesday, August 25 at 12:30

Make Oakland Better Now! is pleased to invite you to an important panel presented by the Oakland Rotary #3 on the effects of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Don’t miss this important presentation!

Note that this meeting will occur on a Tuesday of next week and include a live (see the Rotary Club of Oakland’s YouTube channel) 50-minute panel discussion.

COVID-19 is a global crisis, but it’s not affecting everyone equally. This special event will examine how health, economic, and racial inequities are converging during the pandemic, and how we can create better outcomes for individuals, communities, and our nation.
