Celebrating Black History this month and every month
Every February, the U.S. honors the contributions and sacrifices of African Americans who have helped shape the nation. Black History Month celebrates the rich cultural heritage, triumphs, and adversities that are an indelible part of our country's history.
This year's theme, Black Health and Wellness, brings attention to and honors medical scholars and health care providers. The theme is especially timely as we enter the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately affected minority communities and placed unique burdens on Black health care professionals.
Here at Crisis House, we have committed ourselves to the work of anti-racism. This means responding immediately to confront the economic, societal, and structural forces that keep inequities in place.
Join us in the movement towards equality for all.
