Join healthcare and public health workers in protest to demand justice to end police violence.

#BlackLivesMatter

Demands:

  • Declare racism and police violence a public health emergency.
  • End policing that is violent against marginalized populations, particularly our Black communities (e.g., racial profiling, stop and frisk, gang injunctions, criminalization of houselessness). 
  • Redirect funds from law enforcement agencies to community-based programs for harm prevention, intervention and transformative justice. 
  • Stop and reverse militarization of law enforcement.
  • Eliminate legislative and union contract provisions that shield the police from accountability.
  • Declare records of all investigations of law enforcement brutality with associated materials as public property and ensure public accessibility.
  • Immediately end the violence against protestors. We stand in solidarity with them.

We will practice physical distancing. Wear a mask. Please wear your white coat or healthcare work attire (if applicable).
