What becomes possible when we ask:
What would a world without racism look like?
What would it be like if quality healthcare were accessible to all?
How can we embrace and support wellbeing in all its manifestations?
What could healthy communities look like…and accomplish?
These are some of the questions we continuously ask ourselves in our work at the Western Massachusetts Health Equity Network. The Network commissioned a film that will serve as a centerpiece to meaningful discussions and action on health equity across Western Massachusetts and New England. MOSAIC amplifies the voices of people working within and for our communities of color toward equity, justice, and representation in all aspects of life, including healthcare.
Join us for a Watch Party and Conversation of MOSAIC: Conversations on Racism and Health in Western Massachusetts/New England . Highlighted in the film are the Women of Color Health Equity Collective, Estoy a Aqui, BRIDGE members in the Berkshires and the Okteteau Cultural Center.
