Advancing Anti-Racism/ Racial and Health Equity (with)in Public Health
This is an optional survey for MPHA members & supporters.
Please submit funding ideas by FRIDAY, JUNE 4TH.
Survey Background: what, who, and why?
Dear MPHA Supporters,

This past year MPHA fully acknowledged racism as a social determinant of health and declared racism a public health crisis. Our recent programming has highlighted and reinforced this, but significant work remains to be done. Looking forward, MPHA commits itself to programming that will provide opportunities to further our goal of dismantling structural racism, antisemitism and unconscious biases.

MPHA recently was notified that we received a generous award of $100K from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota to further our anti-racism work. The purpose of this support is to build racial and health equity advocacy capacity of public health professionals through organizational policy change, public health praxis reform, and policy advocacy.

Internally, MPHA will be looking at racial and health equity priorities in organizational by-laws, structure, core functions, membership, trainings, leadership design, community engagement, and policy advocacy. This will be an opportunity for our organization's leaders and members. Externally we are looking for ways to institutionalize and strengthen racial and health equity through building of coalitions, campaigns, and policies to support our anti-racism work.
