APPLAUSE WILL NOT PROTECT US: THE REALITY OF HEALTHCARE WORKERS ON THE FRONTLINES
- This event has passed.
May 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The People’s Forum is convening a recurring online space to hear and discuss current analysis and reports from leaders of people’s movements and organizations in the US and across the world.
During this global pandemic, health workers are celebrated and applauded as heroes as they put their own lives at risk to care for the vulnerable and ill. Despite this, frontline workers are not provided even the minimum PPE required to carry out their work safely. What does this contradiction reveal about the system in which we live today? How has the for-profit medical system created the conditions in which health care workers are forced to work in unsafe conditions? What is the global dimension of US capitalist approach to healthcare? To discuss this and more, we will be joined by Karim Sariahmed, Cris Hilo, and Sheilah Garland-Olaniran.
