The University Honors Program’s What Is Your Dream? programming series presents:
Justice and Health: How the Affordable Care Act is Fulfilling the DreamTuesday, October 29
Juan Ramon Jimenez Room, Adele H. Stamp Student Union
In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream” speech, he describes the journey of black people from slavery to the promise of freedom. He said black people were given a "blank check" and the marchers were in Washington to demand payment. He also said that the people would "….not be satisfied until justice rolled down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream…” This forum, led by Dr. Stephen Thomas from the UMD Center for Health Equity and School of Public Health, will focus on how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is indeed making good on a portion of that "blank check".
This event is free, and light refreshments will be served.
This event is co-sponsored by the University of Maryland Center for Health Equity headquartered in theSchool of Public Health. For more information about this event and Stephen Thomas, click here.
