Posted by Paige Hammond on behalf of Health Equity Initiative's team.
At Health Equity Initiative, we believe in the power and importance of racial healing. Racial healing and health equity go hand in hand, as it is necessary to recognize the consequences of structural racism and implicit bias in order to promote understanding, bridge gaps, stand in solidarity and create transformational change. The National Day of Racial Healing on January 17, 2023, provides the opportunity to reflect on this topic and commit to raising awareness in our own communities.
Please join Health Equity Initiative today by committing to learning about what you can do to promote racial healing in your organizations and communities and raising awareness. This can be done by engaging with Health Equity Initiative's content on addressing racism, racial equity, and racial healing.
Listen to the Soundcloud recording of HEI's most recent Community Leaders Forum titled Racial Healing and Health Equity: Promising Policies and Community-Driven Interventions (part 2), which was held in December 2022. Keep an eye out for the Call to Action and full report, which will be posted on our Community Leaders Forums page.
