While the work of advancing racial health equity happens all year round, the SIREN team rejoices in the occasion that Black History Month provides to collectively celebrate Black excellence, Black thriving, and in line with this year’s theme, Black resistance. We are particularly inspired by the moral imagination of Black abolitionists, past and present, who help point the way toward a vision of freedom, equity, and justice. To learn more about applying abolitionist principles to medicine and social care, join us in rewatching the first plenary from SIREN’s fall meeting and re-reading some key articles.
