Community Healthcare Network joins the global chorus of people of good will in condemning America’s persisting culture of racism. Its evil affects us all.
At the heart of CHN is its daily actions providing needed health care to residents of underserved communities of color. We combat racial disparities in health day by day. It is who we are. That work is good, but not enough.
Like our allies who fight for equality and justice, CHN is looking hard – both inside and outside – to create a fairer and more decent workplace, and world.

Police violence is a public health issue. Community Healthcare Network condemns the unjust, unlawful, and violent targeting of Black people by law enforcement. Police violence inflicts bodily harm, causes trauma, and creates fear among the communities we serve. Police reform is a fundamental requirement for basic public health.
