The recent killing of Daunte Wright, an unarmed Black man, at the hands of a police officer in Minnesota shows clearly that racism and violence against black Americans continues to be a deadly problem that we must address. Racism is a public health crisis, and as an organization that works to protect the health of all Michiganders, we have an obligation to fight against racism in all its forms.
