Black Coalition Against COVID, a D.C.-based initiative aiming to properly and thoroughly inform the Black community about the coronavirus pandemic, will host a virtual town hall Wednesday for currently and formerly incarcerated individuals, their family members, and advocates.

The forum, which will be held from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., is part of BCAC’s “Making It Plain” series, a local- and national-level series of virtual town hall conversations.

“The health of our incarcerated brothers and sisters, and those who have returned from incarceration, are too often overlooked,” the organization said in a statement announcing the event. “In this COVID pandemic, the consequences can be tragic for individuals, families, and our society. Leading advocates, physician experts, and criminal justice professionals will explore the issues and answer your questions regarding vaccinations, masks, child health and much more.”
