The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America: Webinar with Panel Discussion
September 22, 2020 | 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Sponsored by Northeast Delta Dental Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, will conduct a WEBINAR with the SAINT ANSELM COLLEGE CENTER FOR ETHICS IN BUSINESS AND GOVERNANCE. Racial segregation characterizes every metropolitan area in the U.S. and bears responsibility for our most serious social and economic problems – it corrupts our criminal justice system, exacerbates economic inequality, and produces large academic gaps between white and African American schoolchildren. We’ve taken no serious steps to desegregate neighborhoods, however, because we are hobbled by a national myth that residential segregation is de facto: the result of private discrimination or personal choices that do not violate constitutional rights. The Color of Law demonstrates, however, that residential segregation was created by racially explicit and unconstitutional government policy in the mid-twentieth century that openly subsidized whites-only suburbanization in which African Americans were prohibited from participating. Only after learning the history of this policy can we be prepared to undertake the national conversation necessary to remedy our unconstitutional racial landscape. Panelists

Greater Nashua Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Conference
September 30, 2020 | 8:00am - 12:00pm
All children are at risk for lead poisoning, and every child should be tested at 1 and 2 years of age. Children aged 3 to 6 who have not previously been tested should also have the test. The Leading Education and Awareness on Lead (L.E.A.D.) in Greater Nashua initiative is working to increase blood lead level testing for children under 6 years of age in the Greater Nashua Public Health Region (GNPHR) through educational opportunities and educational materials for health care providers, child care providers, and the general public. The goal of this virtual conference is to educate and engage partners, stakeholders, and community members on the impact of childhood lead poisoning, the importance of childhood blood lead testing, and the next steps we can take as a community to keep our children safe and healthy. We hope this conference will empower the Greater Nashua Region to increase engagement in initiatives and collaborations aimed at preventing childhood lead poisoning in our community. Following this conference, participants will be able to:
- Provide an overview of childhood lead poisoning and how it impacts children in our community;
- Highlight current initiatives related to childhood lead poisoning prevention in the GNPHR; and
- Share lead poisoning prevention educational opportunities with partners and community members.
