Our Center condemns racism in all its forms. Too many people struggle with unrelenting trauma caused by racism, discrimination, and violence directed at individuals of color. Our grief and anxiety about these injustices are exacerbated by the detrimental and disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on the nation’s school children through its disruption of learning and the undermining of health and well-being.
The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools stands firmly with those similarly committed to combatting institutional and systemic racism, and who tirelessly champion a society where every child has an equal opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
