Solidarity with Charlottesville, VA Against Racism and White Supremacy

 

Doctors for Global Health stands in solidarity with the people of Charlottesville, VA. We condemn the actions of the White supremacists and neo-nazis who gathered and violently attacked peaceful protesters in the name of racism. We believe that white supremacy and racist violence contradict our collective vision of a just, safe and healthy world. 

We believe it is part of our responsibility, as physicians, public health professionals, artists, teachers, social workers (etc.) committed to health justice to to take an active role in dismantling white supremacy and racism. 

Thank you to our friends over at Public Health Awakened & Human Impact Partners (HIP) who have suggested several actions each of us can take:
