The stark difference between communities' levels of trust in the criminal justice system have long been at the forefront of our national conversation. COVID-19 has now also exposed the historical and present public health harms suffered by communities of color. Public health and public safety experts from across the country will gather to discuss how enduring legacies of racial harm drive disparities and mistrust of public authorities and loss of life specifically in the present public health crisis. The panel will discuss ways to understand and acknowledge harm in this new context. Experts will explore the roots of vulnerable communities' mistrust of medical authorities, as well as opportunities for building greater trust and legitimacy -  and through that, more equitable outcomes in public health- with our nation's most impacted people.
