Race & Justice

In every field of endeavor, in every system of power, people of color disproportionately face stiff headwinds. Race often influences where someone can own a home, who is hired or promoted, how personalities are perceived, rates of arrest and incarceration, quality of medical care, and much more. Past discrimination accumulates, as Ta-Nehisi Coates has so eloquently explained, and continues affecting health, wealth, and well-being today.
