The Disproportionate Impact of Covid-19 on BAME Communities

Thursday, August 6

Mosaic invites you to this presentation by Dr Edie Friedman, founder and Executive Director of the Jewish Council for Racial Equality (JCORE).  For more than 43 years JCORE has provided a Jewish voice on race and asylum issues as well as providing practical support to refugees and asylum seekers.

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all but it has impacted some communities more than others.  Amongst the worst affected have been Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities with BAME people up to four times more likely to die from the virus than their white counterparts.

In this session Edie will look at some of the facts behind these figures and what this says about life for BAME communities in the UK.  She will also look at wider racial justice issues following recent events in the States and also at Black/Jewish relations in the UK.

The presentation will start at 8.00 pm and last approximately 30 minutes, after which there will be plenty of time for questions and further discussion.
