What? A virtual cafecito (informal discussion over coffee) to discuss women of color, cervical cancer prevention and the HPV vaccine.
Why? Women of color have the highest rates of cervical cancer (Latina women, followed by African Americans and API women*) and are more likely to die than white women from cervical cancer. This is an issue that disproportionately affects our communities, and we want to host a discussion about the issues at hand and our concerns about the prevention technologies.
Who? The call is open to all people interested in learning more about cervical cancer prevention and participating in a dialogue focused on women of color. We are inviting national organizational partners, particularly those focusing on reproductive rights, health or justice in communities of color. Allied groups and individuals are welcome to join the phone call, but the discussion will focus on communities of color and low-income women.
When? Wednesday, November 7th, 3pm-5pm EST
Where? It’s virtual (on the phone)! So bring your cafecito (coffee), and we will provide the call-in information. Please reply to Miriam@latinainstitute.org if you are interested in participating, and we will respond with the call info.
