Friends Statement on Racial Injustice and Health Disparities
At Friends we are focused on global health but we know that justice and health begin at home. We recognize our country’s history of racism, violence and injustice against Black people and the disproportionate impact of HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 on the Black community and other communities of color. Black Lives Matter. Our country, and all organizations in our country, must act decisively in the days and years ahead to end the injustice and health disparities we are seeing plainly today. We recommit ourselves to fighting for non-discrimination, equality and health for all people, in the US and the world.
