Racial Justice Statement

Our mission is to increase access to health care for those who have been disproportionately impacted by HIV, poverty, trauma, and discrimination. In order to protect and promote the physical and mental health of those we serve, we must work together to dismantle institutional racism and injustice to address the root of these conditions. Together we have a responsibility to ensure that each day is safer and more just than the days before.

Project ARK and WUID condemn all acts of hate, aggression, and disrespect based on race, in particular the recent and historical violence against Black individuals in our communities. We empathize with the anger and pain experienced by the Black community and call on all to confront the
nation’s history of racial injustice.

To the Black individuals of our community
We stand with you. We are here to partner with and learn from you. We will advocate with you for change. You matter.
