The senseless loss of life and threats to people of color,
whether by COVID-19, at the hands of those who are supposed to protect and
serve, or by individuals weaponizing their privilege to harm others, have
demonstrated our need for bold, sweeping action. To achieve health equity in
the United States, we must confront and dismantle racism.
At HES, we recognize the key to fulfilling our mission is to promote an intentional anti-racism agenda. What does that mean? We need policy solutions that are aimed specifically and intentionally at dismantling the destructive force of racism in our course to health equity. We demand intentional racial equity in our laws, policies, and ways of being in our state.
Please join us today, in signing the petition to dismantle racism in Connecticut!
