WHAT WE DO:
We are a U.S.-based grassroots movement of tens of thousands of activists, COVID survivors and people who have lost loved ones, experts, and health workers in all 50 states. Sparked by the Coronavirus pandemic, and launched during the first week of lock-down, our goal is to take political action to repeal and replace deadly policies that cause cycles of pandemics that disproportionately impact the already poor and sick. We organize to pressure the White House and Congress, with protests, birddog actions, and more than 100 grassroots meetings with Members of Congress each month. We host dynamic online teach-ins ("web-ins") that bring together activists, practitioners, and scholars to learn about pressing issues of health and human rights and how to take action. We train grassroots organizing leaders to mobilize their communities for shared action.
Right to Health's Statement Against Racial Violence
We mourn and stand in solidarity with the family and friends of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other victims of state-sponsored violence—as well as the courageous protestors in this fight against racially-charged mass murder. Their tragic deaths are the result of a pandemic—one of systemic, brutal, violence against BIPOC (Black, Indigenous & People of Color), sanctioned by our country’s laws, policies, and practices.
