From the Oregon Department of Human Services –
“In collaboration with OHA, Multnomah County Public Health, and Department of County Human Services, District 2 is sponsoring an event in the African American/Black/African communities to bring COVID-19 awareness, safety and health education, Vaccination readiness conversations, Vaccination education/Q&A, and Resource sharing via a culturally affirming community engagement forum.
The African-American community has a tremendous trauma history connected to medicinal mistreatment, being used as test subjects without consent [such as in the Tuskegee experiment], and with slavery years of abuse in the name of science.
Our hope in this partnership is to help with assuaging concerns about the vaccination, creating open forums for transparent communication and building trust.”
