On covid-19 in the US and the public health consequences of systemic racism: How YOU can help

Through our #ContraRacismo campaign, the contraCOVID organization is providing resources on the various ways you can help fight racism, such as donations and how to contact local leadership, on our website https://en.contracovid.com/ under the “social assistance” tab. Our anti-racism (“contra Racismo”) resources: https://hms.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9ug1vZxnwjXuYcJ

We also want to start an important conversation about racism in our community, which is why we’re inviting people of all backgrounds to share their experiences with racism by using the hashtag #ContraRacismo, or by making an anonymous submission using the links below:
