NAACP: Presenting, Unmasked: A COVID-19 Virtual Series; Part 1 is Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 8 PM ET/ 5 PM PT


NAACP


We are in the midst of unprecedented times.

Reports from Detroit, New Orleans, and New York confirm what we already knew–this pandemic is hitting people of color the hardest. As the death rate for African Americans continues to rise and the COVID-19 crisis transforms life as we know it, it’s more important than ever for our communities to stay informed.

NAACP along with our partner, BET, have rallied to the frontlines to protect our community. Together, we present the 4 week community program, Unmasked: A COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall Series.

Join us for the first virtual town hall this Wednesday, April 8 at 8pm ET, 5pm PT.

Part one of the four-part series will feature a candid discussion on the health, mental, and economic tolls this crisis has had on our communities and how people of color can apply pressure to ensure the congressional response to this pandemic is equitable.

I will be joined by a slate of panelists including:
 

  • House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, Chair, House Select Committee on Coronavirus Crisis
  • Congresswoman Karen Bass, Chair, Congressional Black Caucus
  • Congressman Bennie Thomspon, Chair, House Committee on Homeland Security
  • Scott Mills, President and CEO, BET Networks
  • and more.

At times such as these, it’s imperative that we as a community plan, not panic. I hope to hear from you on Wednesday.

Fighting Forward,

Derrick Johnson
