WORKING FOR HEALTH JUSTICE

This virtual, interactive conference aims to amplify the community of providers engaging in health justice work in SE Michigan, and to equip current and future providers with tools to serve BIPOC communities. 

 

This year’s theme is “Home,” a multifaceted concept not always experienced as safe. For healthcare providers whose work inherently involves this realm of vulnerability, it is crucial to understand the unique experiences of “Home” specific to BIPOC patients with intersecting, marginalized identities. Join us for this full-day conference in which we will utilize intersectional frameworks to explore what it feels like to be ‘home,’ and use this understanding to advocate for liberation and justice for BIPOC communities.

"In my experience, to care for communities of color today requires three elements: dismantle, build, and integrate."
