Mission

To help healthcare, public health, and other organizations center anti-racism and equity in their workplace culture and reduce health inequities in the communities they serve.

Health Justice leads with racial equity and uses an intersectional approach that recognizes the way that other systems of oppression such as sexism, homophobia and transphobia also contribute to health and social inequities. 

Health Justice achieves its outcomes through engaging presentations and talks, tailored online trainings, organizational equity analyses, and equity mentoring for leadership.

Vision

To create a world free of all systems of oppression where every human being and community is fully supported in achieving optimal health and well-being and where health inequities are non-existent.

Core Values

Authenticity

Transformative change requires candid exploration, reflection and discussion about one’s own beliefs  and role in the systems and structures that perpetuate inequities.

Connection

Racism and other systems of oppression disconnect us from one another; connection to our own selves, one another, and community are needed to create a more equitable world.

Commitment

Dismantling racism and centering equity in the workplace and the world takes time, effort, and an unyielding dedication to this vision.
