JCORE TALK: The Disproportionate Impact of Covid-19 on BAME Communities.
Dr Edie Friedman: Founder and Executive Director of JCORE
Online: 11am Wednesday July 8

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all, but it has impacted some communities more than others. Amongst the worst affected have been Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, with BAME people up to four times more likely to die from the virus than their white counterparts. In this session we will look at some of the facts behind these figures and what this says about life for BAME communities in the UK. We will also look at issues around the murder of George Floyd in the States and at Black / Jewish relations in the UK.

This talk is given by Dr Edie Friedman, founder and executive director of the Jewish Council for Racial Equality (JCORE). For more than 43 years JCORE has provided a Jewish voice on race and asylum issues as well as providing practical support to refugees and asylum seekers.
