Black and Brown United in Action is a grassroots organization focused on social justice and equity. This funding will support the organization’s work to examine how mental wellness and medical emergencies are being handled in communities of color and to recommend changes that will improve equity. This initiative grew out of concerns about how people of color were being treated during emergency situations.

This grant was given as part of the Patricia Baker Awards for Health Equity Policy and Advocacy.
