APA Town Hall on the ‘Racism Pandemic’ Facing our Nation

June 4, 2020

TODAY, June 4th 2020 Join 2020 APA President Sandy Shullman, PhD, President-elect Jennifer Kelly, PhD, Past-president Rosie Phillips Davis, PhD, ABPP, and CEO Arthur Evans, Jr., PhD, for a town hall, in which we can come together as an APA community for a conversation about the “racism pandemic” that is devastating the nation. Recent high-profile violent events targeting black individuals, particularly men, have illustrated the complex constellation of issues at hand (e.g., implicit bias, trauma, structural barriers to change, etc.) and the roles that psychology needs to play in them. APA leadership wants to hear members’ ideas, questions, and thoughts as they map out the association’s short- and longer-term work in this area.

To better create a forum for conversation, attendees will be given an opportunity to speak directly with APA leadership in real time. Because of this setup, attendance will be capped at 1,000 people. Even if you cannot get a seat, please register for the town hall so that you will receive a copy of the recording hours after the conclusion of the event. APA will be able to offer additional forums on this topic going forward, in the hopes that many more members can participate and engage in APA’s work on this issue
