Structural Racism Principles

Structural racism—the normalization and legitimization of historical, cultural, institutional, and interpersonal dynamics that routinely advantage white people while producing cumulative and chronic adverse outcomes for people of color—is a barrier to health. We are committed to acknowledging and combating the deeply entrenched and historical racism that affects the health and well-being of people in the communities our members serve. As policymakers consider the links between structural racism and health and health care, we urge them to consider these policy principles.
