In February of this year, Virginia became the first southern state to declare racism a public health crisis. This resolution, sponsored by Delegate Lashrecse Aird (D-Petersburg), is a significant step for a state built on the legacy of the Confederacy and segregationist policy. Virginia joins 181 cities and counties and 7 states in declaring racism a public health crisis.
Voices for Virginia’s Children is proud to partner with the Institute for Public Health Innovation and the Virginia Public Health Association to present a webinar series that will explore the background, context, and future for this resolution.
