Systemic inequities directly affect public health and lead to diminished health outcomes for marginalized and minoritized populations. It is critical that we, in health name, build a shared analysis and act to dismantle structural racism, along with sexism, gender oppression, ableism, xenophobia and homophobia in all aspects of our society because these factors have led to unnecessary, avoidable, and early deaths of far too many people in the U.S.
