Heather McGhee Streaming Package for the 2022 Conference

The Washington State Public Health Association is excited to host 

Heather McGhee

author of The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together
at its annual conference to be held in Wenatchee, WA October 11-13, 2022. If you can’t join us in-person this year for this inspiring moment, you can join us virtually.

Why is this event important for you and your organization?
The current state of politics attempts to spread misinformation and designate winners and losers when it comes to race and justice. Many are led to believe that if one group is lifted, another must fall. However, what if all boats can be lifted and a zero-sum game achieved? Ms. McGhee’s talk and the accompanying workshops will be a valuable and transformational learning for all interested in achieving an equitable and healthy Washington for all.

“Heather McGhee’s message of how racism hurts us all and how we can have conversations about race within our agencies and communities is critical for our all of us. I hope you will join us in-person or virtually for this meaningful and timely dialogue.” – Adrian Dominguez, WSPHA President
