Jawando to Introduce Legislation Declaring Racism a Public Health Emergency

Montgomery County Councilmember Will Jawando plans to introduce a resolution this week that will declare racism a public health emergency in the county.

In a tweet, he stated, “We are failing our communities of color & must act to change these systems. I hope you’ll join me in advocating for this declaration of racism as a public health emergency & the systems change that must follow. We cannot wait.”

He is taking input on the resolution draft from residents through email at Councilmember.jawando@montgomerycountymd.gov.
