Racism and Health: The Disparity Intersection
"I think that aside from the medical prejudice, let's say, of doctors not believing women of color but especially black women in America when it comes to their pain and their medical attention and care, I think it's also a systematic issue when it comes to just simple access."
Raven Best - Artist and UX Strategist
Anti-Racism and Health Disparities Awareness Guide
“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.”
- Angela Davis
Sign up for our weekly HUB-News to download the guide:
"For me there is only one solution [to racism] and the solution is to check your heart, where is your heart at? Like this is a heart issue, this is to realize that we are one race, the human race, we are God’s children. ... This is my brother, this is my sister. And once we start to realize that, and we come together with that knowledge and understanding, that’s the only way that this is going to change."
Programs like these are made possible by the generous support of our partners.
