A Message from Wisconsin AHEC
It is with heavy hearts that we share this message with our students, partners, funders, supporters and the communities we serve. The murder of George Floyd, and so many others before him, has shined light on the long standing history of racism and inequity in our country. Black Lives Matter. We are all feeling pain, outrage, and uncertainty. The nature of our work at Wisconsin AHEC positions us to be powerful advocates, allies for our communities of color, and change agents as we strive to accomplish a more representative health care workforce, address social determinants of health, and support cultural competency efforts in our communities. We must answer the call to action – louder and with more intentionality than we ever have before. We are committed to educating, advocating, and demonstrating our values in our programming and policies.
We trust you will join us in our work to face social inequalities head-on and commit to peaceful strategies that lead to systematic change.
