Our Ongoing Quest To Move the Work Forward
--by Melina Hill Walker
The Endowment's commitment to health equity and racial justice is well known. Many of our community partners have engaged with us in this work for more than a decade. More recently, hundreds of you attended the Inaugural Symposium on Race & Equity in NH. Many more of you would have participated had we had the space, but alas, ended up on a waiting list. This is testament to the energy, curiosity and concern so many of us share about the need to acknowledge and stamp out racism in our country and our state. Many of us understand on a gut level that we cannot be healthy without a culture free from the lie of racial constructs. Every one of us suffers from the societal setbacks of racism, no matter what our background or skin color.
