Brief description: After the murder of George Floyd this past summer of 2020, corporations and nonprofits
-- including medical schools and hospital systems -- went out of their way to say "Black Lives
Matter" and to condemn racism. While many applauded these gestures, others who had been involved
with White Coats for Black Lives (WC4BL) since its inception in late 2014/early 2015 remained
skeptical, knowing that these same institutions were either apathetic to or actively hostile toward
trainee organizing a short 5-6 years prior. Given this renewed institutional interest in addressing racism,
learn from one of the founding organizers of WC4BL how to recognize racist practices and structures
within your own organization and how to advocate for change beyond employee implicit bias training.

Learning objectives:
Identify racism, rather than race, as the driver of health inequities

Describe how "race" used in disease risk stratification and medical decision-making reinforces the
pseudoscience of biological race

Recognize institutionalized racism as interlocking systems of oppression beyond the social
determinants of health

Utilize the WC4BL Racial Justice Report Card as a tool for identifying racial inequities within your
own institution
