This town hall event, featuring speakers from Brazil, Egypt, Guatemala, Peru, South Africa, and the United States, will be of interest to undergraduate researchers and their mentors, particularly those interested in how the pandemic has affected people in less affluent countries as well as disadvantaged groups in the United States (for example, the incarcerated).
As rich countries vaccinate their populations and prepare to reopen, many poorer countries and vulnerable populations in the US are struggling for vaccine access. On Friday, May 28th, the CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP) will host a Town Hall event to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and global equity issues.
This forum will consist of three panels and include speakers from Brazil, Egypt, Guatemala, Peru, South Africa, and the United States. The US speakers will address vaccine access issues among migrants at the US borders, people in US prisons and jails, and vulnerable populations in US cities. Speakers will also address the gendered impacts of COVID-19, especially in Venezuela and Colombia.

An abbreviated version of the flyer is attached.
This event is free and open to everyone. Please circulate widely within your networks. All faculty, administrators, students, and members of the community are encouraged to attend.
We hope to see you on May 28th!
