PSR-LA is proud to announce the second annual Don’t Mourn, Organize training event for health professionals on Saturday, October 20th from 8:30 a.m. – 1 pm. at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science. The event will address some of the major drivers of health disparity affecting low-income communities of color throughout Southern California. The trainings will be led by professionals and advocates embedded in social justice efforts that impact communities in Los Angeles and the greater surrounding area.

This event provides a space where attendees can learn about and discuss issues including environmental racism; joblessness and poverty; mass incarceration and immigration; and gentrification, homelessness, and displacement. Furthermore, the interactive skills-based component will tie into current campaigns relating to single-payer healthcare, police transparency, rent control, and industrial oil and gas operations, amongst others. Please join us for this incredible opportunity to learn about ongoing community campaigns and how to implement these advocacy strategies in your community!
