America finds itself in a unique period of protests, civil unrest and a renewed focus on police violence. This is occurring in the middle of a public health crisis and an economic contraction unlike anything in generations.

So, on Juneteenth, the holiday remembering the end of slavery, State of Reform will host three of the most thoughtful senior health care executives and health care leaders with which we work across the Western United States. We will discuss their experience working to transform US health care, their experience as African Americans leaders, and the role the health care sector can play to address structural inequality and racism in American society.
