Guidance: Declarations of Racism as a Public Health Crisis

June 1, 2021


The information in this resource was derived from issues and questions raised in the Network webinar, “Declarations of Racism as a Public Health Crisis: Utilizing Declarations to Address Health Inequities,” which examined:

» declarations of racism as a public health crisis and their potential impact

» specific examples of actions committed to or implemented that can set a community on a path for meaningful change

» legal and policy opportunities for implementing these declarations and associated efforts to dismantle structural racism and achieve health equity

The webinar and this related resource can help guide stakeholders in developing and implementing declarations as well as thinking through broader issues connected to race and racism.
