The effects of racism, high prevalence of health disparities, and systemic oppression that have deeply affected black communities and other communities of color are issues of great concern to CDTFC. The recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have intensified scrutiny not only of law enforcement, but of all institutional racism as reflected in disparities related to wealth, income, criminal justice, employment, housing, political power, education and health care.

Racism has no place in a just society. Everyone deserves the right to live and thrive in environments that are safe, stable and healthy. We stand committed to support reforms that address institutionalized racism and advance our organization’s mission to eliminate health disparities. #EndDisparities #HealthEquity
