A statement of grief and solidarity from our Executive Director

Health Promotion Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Inc., stands in solidarity with protesters and all those who are and have been mobilizing to dismantle the structural racism and oppression that fuels violence and injustice against Black individuals and communities.

As a community-based public health organization, we know that racism is at the foundation of many of the disparities that we work to address. Chronic health conditions, COVID-19, police brutality all disproportionately impact communities of color – and, more specifically, Black communities. While we have long known this reality, as a country, we have yet to achieve true justice and equity.

Racism in our country cannot and will not be tolerated. We join the communities and voices calling for change. We also know that words alone are not enough.

Each day, our team shows up for individuals, families, and communities who count on us. Our work is to promote health through outreach, education, and advocacy. The direct education and navigation support that our team provides is critical in addressing barriers to health. However, we can’t lose sight of the fact that it is individual and systemic change that is truly needed to dismantle the root of inequity in our country.

As a subsidiary of Public Health Management Corporation, an organization focused on creating and sustaining healthier communities, we will work together as a unified public health community to achieve equity, justice, and healing.

Racism is a public health crisis.

Our call is to eliminate health inequities that are grounded in racism. Our commitment is not only to confront inequities in the communities where we work; but also to confront them within our own organization so that we can do our part to achieve equity and inclusion everywhere that we are active.

The work before us may seem enormous, but we walk toward it with courage, conviction, and commitment to dismantle the systemic racism and resulting inequities that plague our country.

In solidarity,
Christina Miller
