Within the first few weeks of the new administration, there has been tremendous threats to our quality of life. We have seen a surge in actions against our healthcare, our education system and immigrants to name a few. We are afraid for our communities when it comes to whether or not they will have access to healthcare coverage and if their families will be able to stay together. We are challenged in new ways and we know this is just the beginning of a long battle ahead. CPEHN is committed to ensuring health justice and equity for communities of color and we refuse to give up.
We are thankful to our partners and other advocates who have been on the frontlines and have pushed back against the proposed changes by the new administration. The response to preserve the gains we’ve made has been incredible and shows our solidarity is strong. We are also grateful to our donors who support our efforts during this critical time. Specifically, we would like to thank California Health Care Foundation and Blue Shield of California for their generous grants. We are proud to be one of nine organizations to receive Act Now funding to continue to defend our healthcare. We look forward to our partnership with them.
