Systemic racism makes it harder for Latinos and other people of color to get healthcare, housing, transportation, education, employment, healthy food, safe treatment by police, and more.

We need solutions to end racial/ethnic injustice.

Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, to discuss how to address racial/ethnic injustice and discuss clear, measurable strategies and actions to combat racial/ethnic disparities in housing, public health, education, and more!

We’ll open the floor to your comments, tips, and stories as we explore:

  • How does racial/ethnic injustice impact health for people of color?
  • What are some emerging ways that our community leaders, school leaders, and people address racial/ethnic injustice?
  • Who are your heroes for racial/ethnic justice?

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share your strategies, stories, and resources to explore racial/ethnic injustice and solutions!

#SaludTues is a health equity tweetchat especially focused on the Latino population at 12p CT/1p ET every Tuesday hosted by the @SaludAmerica program at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio.
