    Event Description:
    July 11: TED Talk Tuesday. The Sisters of St. Francis’ Franciscan Peace Center in Clinton invites you to watch this week’s TED Talk by David R. Williams titled “How Racism Makes Us Sick.” Why does race matter so profoundly for health? David R. Williams developed a scale to measure the impact of discrimination on well-being, going beyond traditional measures like income and education to reveal how factors like implicit bias, residential segregation and negative stereotypes create and sustain inequality. In this eye-opening talk, Williams presents evidence for how racism is producing a rigged system — and offers hopeful examples of programs across the US that are working to dismantle discrimination View the talk at http://bit.ly/2qnuXCx, then join in a discussion on the Sisters’ Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SistersOfStFrancisClintonIa/
