Women and COVID-19: A Conversation with Representative Alma Adams

Join us for an event on the gender implications of COVID-19. Congresswoman Alma Adams, co-chair of the Black Maternal Health Caucus and a champion of women’s health on Capitol Hill, will bring her policy perspective to the impact the pandemic has had on women. We will discuss the effects on women’s health and employment, the increase in violence against women, and the role of race and racism in the COVID-19 response.

Congressional Relations

The Wilson Center’s office of Congressional Relations works to maintain a vibrant relationship with Members of Congress and their staffs. We organize and run a series of educational programs led by Wilson Center experts, ranging from seminars to podcasts, with the purpose of increasing congressional staffers’ knowledge of international policy. We also coordinate outreach to Capitol Hill, including testimonies by Wilson Center scholars and briefings for Members of Congress.  Read more

By leveraging, building on, and coordinating the Wilson Center’s strong regional and cross-cutting programming, the Maternal Health Initiative (MHI) promotes dialogue and understanding among practitioners, scholars, community leaders, and policymakers.  Read more
