Racism is a Public Health Crisis

“Violence” is often used to label the visible response of people who have endured traumatic experiences rooted in a system originally designed to deny the human rights of Black People. Unaddressed public policy, institutional and systemic oppression, and anti-Black racism, including physical violence against Black people, continues to preserve our government’s original intent. Challenging how we see “violence” and understanding who the beneficiaries are of government “safety protocols” is the critical, anti-racist work of health equity.
