RACISM MEETS CRITERIA FOR THREAT TO PUBLIC HEALTH

Force CDC/NIH to admit that racism is the true public health target impacting outcomes for ALL Americans. Cure the infection and not just the fever.

Why is this important?

From gun violence to universal healthcare, no field of endeavor or conflict in this country is untouched by the legacy of racism manifest by our American destiny. Despite scholarly and established work to the contrary, CDC cries "No evidence-based best practices to address it" as an excuse not to do their job, so the people must demand it. I have seen the stress of loss of privilege, the minute daily drips of intangible "microaggressions" and the gaping wounds of bullets; I took an oath and DO NO HARM is not enough. We're also on Twitter and would ask folks to tweet Trevor Noah and other prominent folks who "have the mic"! @Right2healthNow

Reasons for signing

  • Because Racism is not only horrific and comes from ignorance and fear, it is degrading and dehumanizing to the whole human race; which is the only race, on earth, there is.
  • Because I think it is appalling that in this "great" country of ours that access to healthcare is so difficult for so many.
  • Join me in signing the petition to declare racism a threat to public health. Force CDC/NIH to admit that racism is the true public health target impacting outcomes for ALL Americans. Cure the infection and not just the fever.
