Learning from Parallel Social Movements was the third plenary session of November 2017’s Putting Care at the Center conference, the second annual conference of the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs.

This panel draws from the experiences of leaders from significant social movements. Panelists share their personal challenges and triumphs as they work to empower the populations they serve. This panel connects the long-term work of social justice movements to complex health and social needs priorities, and examines what current practitioners in this new field may learn as they serve their respective populations.
