Edition 30 - Social Justice

Edition 30, Social Justice

Edition 30 is dedicated to social justice and inequity. Systemic racism has contributed to mental health issues, health inequity, racialized segregation, forced normalization, structural colourism, inequitable distribution of resources, disparities in incarceration, racism in research, housing and homelessness, and underrepresentation of minorities, among other issues. This edition is a compilation of the challenges that have manifested in our communities as a result of racial inequities. HPHR spotlights these issues across the spectrum, with a series of articles aimed in dismantling racial bias in the hopes of discontinuing the propagation of behaviors that contribute to these inequities.
