15 Jun Social Inequality and Racism
Community Health Alliance and subsidiaries Sojourner Recovery Services and Transitional Living (TLC) acknowledge and condemn the systemic racism, oppression and violence against persons of color and diverse ethnic backgrounds. We believe that equality is a human right and strive to support our employees, clients, families and communities in confronting racism in all forms. The prevalence of violence against Black Americans has highlighted racial inequalities, which have long standing systemic impacts on all areas of life especially a person’s overall health and wellness. Racism is a public health crisis that disproportionately impacts persons of color and their health outcomes. At Community Health Alliance, we strive to be culturally responsive and inclusive. We stand with our partner agencies in supporting people of color and speaking out against racism in all forms and are committed to engaging in open dialogue to address the challenges facing our community. Racism can’t be tolerated and requires action from all of us.
