Racism and Public Health

Racism and associated violence are public health issues that should have no place in our world. The Rhode Island Public Health Association stands with the Black Lives Matter movement and all of those fighting systemic institutionalized racism and injustices. Public health goes beyond vaccines and contact tracing to include social determinants of health - the conditions in our environment that impact health. We recognize racism and violence as social determinants of health that are born of ignorance, bigotry, and hatred. End racism now - there is no alternative.
