“The healthy society we are morally obligated to create would treat all citizens with equal levels of care and compassion. Current inequities, however, levy a devastating toll on the lives of many people in America. These are difficult conversations, but we will embrace the tension in order to move toward a healthier society.”
—Alicia Wilson, vice president for economic development at The Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Health System, describing a free new online discussion series — the JustUs Dialogues — featuring many of the nation's most important voices on topics relating to racial justice. The series, hosted over Zoom, kicked off on Aug. 20 with a discussion on police reform and will culminate in October with an online symposium on health and restorative justice.
