Health Equity March Supporting Black Lives Matter

On June 14th, the Brown Minority Housestaff Association (BMHA), Brown Sexual and Gender Minority Alliance (BSGMA), and Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs (ODMA) organized a march from Rhode Island Hospital to the steps of the state capitol building. Residents Doc Aswad (’22) and Erin Baroni (’21) delivered powerful speeches highlighting the inequity and bias inextricably woven into our healthcare system. They presented our state government and hospital leadership with a list of demands aimed at rectifying the injustices faced by communities of color and trans individuals in our country. Thank you to Matthew TW Huang who took many of the photographs at the event. If anyone would like any particular images taken down, please reach out to us on the ‘Contact Us’ page.
