What this document is all about: Resources and organized efforts responding to COVID19

Public Health Awakened (www.publichealthawakened.com), in collaboration with The Spirit of 1848 (www.spiritof1848.org), are crowdsourcing this database to inform a public health response to COVID19 that centers equity, racial justice, collective care, and community and power building — we know these are what create conditions for health, in this pandemic and beyond. We are both national public health groups that center social justice, health equity, and action in our work. Our members represent the broad field of public health; we are researchers, educators, students, non-profit workers, healthcare providers, government workers, and more.

In this current moment, it is more clear than ever that our public health work must focus on the social and structural determinants of health. We see all the topics and issues in this document as public health issues that those of us inside and outside of public health must take action on both during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We have included resources in a number of languages in this document.

We hope that you find this a useful resource and you will both share resources you find here as well as add resources you are seeing elsewhere. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please email sari@humanimpact.org and sophia@humanimpact.org.

Public Health Awakened is a network of public health professionals organizing for health, equity, and justice. We work with social justice movements on strategic and collective action to create a world in which everyone can thrive and to resist the threats faced by communities of color and low-income communities. We are calling on public health nonprofits, government agencies, academics, and others to courageously step up and use their power — their evidence, voice, and resources — to protect and promote people’s lives and communities.

The Spirit of 1848 is a network of people concerned about social inequalities in health. Our purpose is to spur new connections among the many of us involved in different areas of public health, who are working on diverse public health issues (whether as researchers, practitioners, teachers, activists, or all of the above), and live scattered across diverse regions of the United States and other countries. In doing so, we hope to help counter the fragmentation that many of us face: within and between disciplines, within and between work on particular diseases or health problems, and within and between different organizations geared to specific issues or social groups. By making connections, we can overcome some of the isolation that we feel and find others with whom we can develop our thoughts, strategize, and enhance efforts to eliminate social inequalities in health.
