Webinar: Health Justice, Homelessness and Sanitation: Confronting a National Public Health Crisis

June 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The U.S. is grappling with its worst Hepatitis A (HAV) outbreak since the federal government approved a vaccine in 1995. The outbreak has disproportionally affected people experiencing homelessness (PEH). In communities nationwide, adequate, safe, clean and accessible public toilets, sinks, laundry facilities and showers are scarce or altogether absent. By attending this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The connection between sanitation and hygiene access, homelessness, and the national HAV outbreak
  • Current government responses to the U.S. HAV outbreak
  • How meaningful participatory processes can strengthen policy efforts to address sanitation and hygiene inequities from advocacy to implementation
  • Legal and policy opportunities to further sanitation and hygiene access for PEH

Speakers:

  • Madeline Morcelle, JD, MPH, Staff Attorney, The Network for Public Health Law – Western Region
  • Lauren Dunning, JD, MPH, Liaison to the Board of Supervisors, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health
  • Greg Spiegel, JD, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Inner City Law Center
