In 2018, the Wisconsin Public Health Association adopted a resolution declaring racism a public health crisis, committing to work toward change.
Since then, equity and social justice advocates across the U.S. have picked up the call to action, passing almost 200 declarations at the state and local level. APHA’s Center for Public Health Policy is supporting that work by tracking and sharing the declarations on an interactive online map.
The Nation’s Health’s Lindsay Syms discusses that work with center Director Tia Taylor Williams.
