The Impact of Social Justice Work on Health Disparities
Today is the day we honor Martin Luther King, Jr, and his extraordinary leadership during the American Civil Rights Movement.
As we reflect on social justice and the importance of social justice to all of our work, but particularly in achieving health equity for people of color, we invited Connecticut Health Foundation (CT Health) Board Chairman Sanford (Sandy) Cloud, Jr, to discuss with us his “lifelong work in the public, nonprofit, and advocacy worlds.”
Sandy has a long, distinguished history of fighting for social justice in many arenas. In this video, Sandy shares the highlights of this work, from helping people of color win construction contracts, to his work as President of The National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ), to his contributions to CT Health’s Policy Panel on Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities.
