Social Justice Resources: Health Equity & Racial Equity

Below is a list of resources compiled by SWHPN staff, members, and stakeholders to help us and those in our field learn and self-reflect on issues surrounding health and racial equity. Without racial equity, there is no health equity; and without health equity, there is no racial equity. This list is an ongoing effort by SWHPN to provide our members and the public with tools and resources to learn, challenge ourselves, and have the hard conversations with ourselves, our peers, our colleagues, and our institutions.
