The Color of Care

VolunteerMatch is proud to partner with Harpo Productions and Smithsonian Channel to promote The Color of Care — a new documentary chronicling how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare in the United States and how COVID-19 exposed the tragic consequences of this inequity.

It is important for everyone watching the film to know that they have a voice, can take action, and create change.
