Health Equity Resources
The Center aims to provide students, researchers, practitioners and community members with resources to better understand racism and health and to guide efforts to improve health equity.
Led by U.S. representatives, the CBC Foundation Health Braintrust seeks to identify barriers to health equity and develop strategies for addressing them.
Under the superb and humble leadership of Dr. Vic Schoenbach, the University of North Carolina’s Minority Health Project has produced and archived conferences and other resources on the health of racial/ethnic minorities.
Recognizing that action, leadership, inclusion, and collaboration are the basis for driving policy decisions, the collaborative strives to connect people most impacted by social and racial injustices and to transform systems and institutions built on the enduring legacy of racism, particularly its less visible – but more insidious –structural manifestations. In so doing, the collabortive will improve the health, well-being and life opportunities for communities of color.
The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond focuses on understanding what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone. Workshops utilize a systemic approach that emphasizes learning from history, developing leadership, maintaining accountability to communities, creating networks, undoing internalized racial oppression and understanding the role of organizational gate keeping as a mechanism for perpetuating racism.
