Campaign Against Racism Grand Strategy
The goal of the Campaign Against Racism is to dismantle structural racism and its effects on health around the world – because racism kills – by supporting local actions, efforts, and networks which aim to improve the health and lives of those most affected by racism.
Campaign Against Racism Organizing Statement
We are organizing the Social Medicine Consortium to achieve racial justice across medical centers, universities, and organizations by educating health professional about the structural and social determinants of health and supporting local campaigns which seek to address racism and the legacy of colonialism in the health sector globally. We will do this by establishing chapters of the Social Medicine Consortium with community organizing capacity, creating a scorecard for structural racism, and activating networks by 2019.
