On June 17, 2020 Executive Director Bonnie Castillo participated in “Why We Fight: Voices from the Struggle for Health Justice” highlighting the voices of healthcare workers and activists, dissenters, and visionaries fighting for the right to health and health justice, past and present.
As people across the world unite to rally, protest, and fight for equality and justice against unjust policing and state-sanctioned brutality against Black lives – in the midst of a pandemic that disproportionately, devastatingly affects Black and indigenous people and people of color – Voices of a People’s History of the United States, 400 Years of Inequality, and National Nurses United are proud to stand in solidarity.
The dueling public health crises we’re facing make it more clear than ever that we must radically reimagine our vision of health and health care. This event uplifts examples from the past and present where we can find inspiration and learning.
