Anti-Oppression Statement: Health Cannot be Achieved without Justice
June 3, 2020 – As midwives, we have the responsibility of life within our hands every day. As we watch horrified by yet another killing of a black man in the US, we are reminded of our responsibilities to the essential work that is still required to combat racism right here at home. Injustice, inequity, and oppression aren’t someone else’s houseguests. They are ours and sometimes we are also that houseguest. Until we understand how to awaken, act, and do the work, we will continue to dwell in the denial that has allowed racial inequities to thrive.
