We at RHEDI are delighted to celebrate Amanda Gorman, both for her inspirational inauguration poem and for her invigorating anti-racism work. She exemplifies countless other courageous Black women, as well as other BIPOC, who have provided leadership in the fight against racism, misogyny, xenophobia, and reproductive injustice.
It is a privilege to be able to uplift the voices of young BIPOC who are joining and leading struggles to disrupt and dismantle the foundational structures and institutions in the United States that suppress democracy and equity, and that perpetuate white supremacy and reproductive and social injustice.
We look forward to joining with all those who are carrying the burden of this labor. We will continue to work with and support new leaders and others on the ground as we develop new strategies for diversifying the family medicine workforce and transforming SRH training to meet the needs of the patients we serve.
