We are committed to doing the hard work of moving forward where we can make a real impact. As part of our Pledge to Make Meaningful Change

Our intent is to confront the nation’s crisis in racial heath disparities and reimagine a more equitable health care system, especially for people of color. Starting here and starting now, we can begin to put an end to the racial disparities in healthcare.
