At All In, over 200 collaborations are working together to promote community health through data, collaboration, and community leadership. Driving this effort is the fight for racial justice and health equity – without which people cannot reach their optimal level of health and communities cannot thrive.
Over the past week, the brutal murder of George Floyd, the police violence in the face of legitimate protest, and the unjust and ongoing oppression of black, indigenous and other people of color (BIPOC) reflect centuries of systemic racism in our country. We treasure our shared community and the opportunity we have to fight together for equity, anti-racism and justice.
We are actively seeking new avenues to reflect these aims in our shared work. On the most recent episode of the All In podcast, Dr. Rhea Boyd referred to the disproportionate COVID-19 deaths of black and brown people as “the epidemic within the pandemic.” It has inspired us during this tumultuous time in our nation and we encourage each other to listen, reflect and take action.
