I’m honored to have Dr. Ben Danielson’s support as we fight to address #racism, health equity and the social determinants of health. Thousands signed on supporting his demand for #healthequity and #racialjustice here in Seattle, and across our health systems. We need action NOW✊🏾

He says it best in his @southseattleemerald piece: "I believe we have an obligation, no matter how tired we are, no matter how much we fear putting our careers at risk, no matter our sense of historic complicity, to act right now, in this moment, to make the right decisions and make the right kind of noise even when it feels hardest. This is our time of reckoning for racism. 

What are you willing to do?"
I stand with Dr. Ben Danielson. There is no place for racism in any system, especially healthcare. We must demand accountability and action. Thank you Dr. Ben for demanding change by leading on health and racial justice.
