Last year, we introduced a series, Equity Stories, lifting up the stories of Convener member organizations who signed the Black Agenda Group’s declaration, Racism is a Public Health Crisis.

Today, we are sharing the story of Children’s Institute. Children’s Institute is committed to working towards the elimination of systemic and institutional racism, individual racism, and implicit bias. Families with children in communities of color demand allies who support, understand, recognize, and transform personal discomfort into decisive action that promotes lasting change around these inequities. Children’s Institute does not stand silent. Silent isn't neutral. They stand and speak for racial justice and public health equity – together.
