COVID-19 AND THE RIGHT TO HEALTH

Are you uncomfortable with the current structure of our healthcare system? Do you sometimes ask yourself: How did our society get here? Do you feel called to action?

 

The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated how precarious it all is, how unprepared we are, and how weak our social protections are. Especially for the millions of marginalized people who are excluded from access to basic human rights (food, shelter, a living wage, decent education, equitable voting, quality healthcare). 

 

Now is an opportunity to unify and make sense of this, build relationships, and engage with experts & frontline providers to try to understand what’s happening. We do this so we can work together to craft a more equitable and just reality for all of our futures.
