EJH Summit 2023

NCBA Tackles Environmental Racism & Healthcare Disparities

On Saturday, January 20, 2024, the North Carolina Black Alliance held its second annual Grounded in Justice, Rooted in Wellness Environmental Justice and Healthcare Summit. Held at the historic Franklinton Center at Bricks in Whitakers, NC, the event gathered environmental justice and healthcare advocates from near and far to deepen our collective understanding of the intersection of environmental justice and healthcare. Juxtaposed with the legacy of the Franklinton Center at Bricks and the purpose of the Summit to give voice to important issues that too often go unheard, collectively, we were able to reclaim a historical space to mobilize voters for the year ahead.
