Sick of Being Poor: The Deadly Impacts of Poverty
Monday, November 12, 10:00am-1:00pm
Center for African American Health, 3601 Martin Luther King Blvd
Join SAGE of the Rockies and The Center for African American Health for an opportunity to deepen your understanding of socioeconomic class and health equity. This event will feature a pre-recorded talk by Niki Okuk along with a facilitated community conversation by Mac Liman.
Poor, low-income, and working-class people regularly face unstable housing, unreliable transportation and insecure employment. These experiences are intensified by society’s constant hostility and blame. Niki Okuk will explore the way systemic class oppression operates to make and keep people poor, and how this intergenerational trauma can take its toll on people’s bodies and minds. Okuk will then look at worker-owned businesses as one way to create greater justice for working people.
