Health

Everyone deserves access to affordable, comprehensive healthcare no matter their income, race, gender, or where they're from.

People need to stay healthy so they can work, take care of their families, and be active members of their communities. But inequities in the health care system in America today, informed by the legacy of structural racism, have resulted in worse health outcomes and disparities in access to care for immigrants, people of color, and for Black people in particular.

Healthcare is a human right. The high cost of care means millions of families have no access to the critical care all human beings deserve.

We are intentional about addressing barriers to healthcare that specific communities experience.
