What Happens Next?
As more and more communities grapple with the question: “What happens next?” the door to groundbreaking and systemic reform is now open.
Not only have policy levers been put in place, local advocates are increasingly fighting for change. Newer groups like Black Lives Matter are taking the lead in pointing to the pervasive racial injustice that underpins the American criminal justice system.
Success on a systemic scale, however, will require reforming our health care system, particularly the points at which it intersects with criminal justice, and eliminating other discriminatory barriers.
LAC brings a deep understanding of health care and criminal justice policies and practices and how to move these large, complex sectors toward coordinated and fundamental change. The No Health = No Justice Campaign brings these forces together to create radical reform and build a bridge to the civil rights that far too many communities have been systematically denied.
