Latinx Healthcare in the 21st Century: Carmen Varela on Disability Rights

November 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Latinx Health Care in the 21st Century

Carmen Varela, MS
“Disability Rights of California & University of Southern California Disability Rights and Latinx Communities”

About the Series

Practitioners’ Perspectives

The Trump administration has targeted immigrant communities with special vitriol against Latinx, Central Americans, Mexicans and AfroLatinx communities. Community healthcare practitioners and researchers are at the frontlines of resistance to the capitalist system of healthcare that has destroyed the safety net and rendered our communities vulnerable and exposed. Committed to forging a safety net for the working poor and people of color in Los Angeles and beyond, these practitioners are protecting the most basic of human rights: the right to quality healthcare across borders.
