Today we welcome two experts from the California Budget & Policy Center, Monica Davalos and Adriana Ramos-Yamamoto, to discuss the recently released Budget Center report urging California policymakers to declare racism as a public health crisis. We explore why they think this is necessary and how racism affects housing, the environment, employment, health care, the justice system, and education.
