A message from our CEO, John Santistevan:
On May 25, George Floyd was senselessly killed by a Minneapolis police officer, who kneeled on his throat for 8 min and 46 seconds. This tragedy has led to an overdue outcry to dismantle systemic racism. The underlying forces responsible for the current societal upheaval have always been present in our society. It is long past time for this to end.
The peaceful protests undertaken by individuals in communities across our nation and around the world have sparked needed conversations in every corner of our society. Civic and social groups, companies, neighborhoods, and individuals are now faced with discussing the truth of the inequities that exist in so many aspects of American society.
Remember the health center program was born out of the Civil Rights Movement. Supporting social justice is a big part of our mission.
Salud Family Health Centers stands with the Black Lives Matter movement, with Latinx, Migrant Farm Workers, with Native Americans, with the unemployed and underemployed, with everyone who based on their race, color, religion, gender, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability who have been excluded from equal opportunity, equal health care, and equal education. The American Dream belongs to everyone. Together we will stand and work until that dream is equally accessible and achievable to everyone. Black lives matter.
