In this webinar recording, Critical Conversations on the Intersections of Structural Racism, Youth, and Community Well-being: Unpacking the Impacts of Structural Racism on Youth, PI's Sheila Savannah joins Dr. Jamila Porter, Safe States Director of Programs and Evaluation, in a conversation with STRYVE Action Council panelists:

- Miyah Hull, APA Youth Advisory Board member
- Brian D. Smedley, PhD, Chief of Psychology in the Public Interest and Acting Chief Diversity Officer, American Psychological Association (APA)
The panelists define structural racism and discuss it from many angles, including its history rooted in racist laws and policies, several of the many systems that racist policies and practices continue to affect today (education, criminal justice, healthcare, housing), and how we can and must consciously dismantle the racism in our systems if we want stronger, safer, more equitable communities.
