Racism Is a Public Health Crisis

Protests across the country are calling us to witness what we have always known to exist: the systemic racism that underlies and permeates our societal structures. We express grief, pain, and outrage over centuries of racial injustice that have resulted in Black lives demeaned, derailed, and cut short. Learn More

We formally pledge our support for the Greater Rochester Black Agenda Group’s declaration that Racism is a Public Health Crisis which demands urgent action to address persistent, toxic, and lethal racial discrimination in our community.
