Join us for the opening event of this year's Race & in America series: Race & Inequality, on Tuesday, October 26 at 12 noon. Register: https://bit.ly/raceandinequality
Learn more: https://bit.ly/raceandseries

Last year, over 3,000 attended Race & in America events. At a pivotal moment, the series provided a virtual platform for thinking through the ways that anti-Black racism remains an enduring and foundational feature of American society.

Now the series expands and deepens in scope—both in thinking more comparatively about the roots and effects of racism in the U.S. and exploring the arts more fully. Jointly sponsored by CSREA and the Office of the Provost, Brown scholars will investigate the origins, histories, and enduring contemporary effects of racism in America from a range of fields and scholarly perspectives.

Responding to the shooting of Jacob Blake | Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences | Brown University 08/29/2020

We are once again heartbroken and appalled to witness another act of police brutality against a Black person—this time the shooting of Jacob Blake by a police officer in Wisconsin. The disproportionate rate of attack on Black bodies by police is a public health crisis borne out of systemic anti-Black racism. Plain and simple, we must treat it like the public health crisis that it is.

Congratulations to BSHS PhD student Anthony Surace on his acceptance into the Population Reference Bureau's U.S. Policy Communication Training Program! The highly competitive U.S. Policy Communication Training Program prepares researchers to influence policy and practice through effective communication.

"My long-term goal is to develop a career as a behavioral scientist researching the impact environmental factors (e.g. discrimination) have on s*xual minority (SM) populations’ alcohol use. Ultimately, I want such research to inform public health and social policies to reduce health disparities between SM and non-SM populations. To this end, my goal for the U.S. Policy Communication Training is to acquire necessary training to disseminate research findings to policy makers/community members."

Statement from Editor-in-Chief Dr. Robert Garofalo on Historic Presidential Discrimination Policy “At a time when our nation faces unprecedented challenges in the forms of a global pandemic and racial unrest, it is unconscionable that the Administration would choose to focus its attention on discrimination and the erosion of the tenant of health care as a basic human right.
