Black people have been faced with disparities in health care and health outcomes for decades. Eliminating racially-motivated barriers to health care must be a top priority for our state moving forward. The Black Health Matters initiative seeks to frame health equity as a racial justice issue and to educate about the long-standing systemic barriers to care and other social determinants of health, as well as bias in the healthcare industry, that create worse health outcomes for Black people.

Our neighbors can’t wait any longer to see meaningful change come to Black communities!
