For the past two years, we have been representing a community coalition in the Bronx in a case about insurance- and race-based segregation in New York City hospitals. This Monday night, our campaign is going to be featured in an investigative news piece by Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN! The piece will air during the Anderson Cooper 360, between 10pm and midnight; not sure yet which hour. Please tune in and show your support! (Or for those of you with more new-fangled technology, be sure to DVR it.)
Better yet, tune in with a group and use the story as an opportunity to talk about institutional racism in the health care system, and what can be done about it. Check out our Community Discussion Guide to help you facilitate the conversation. If you’re a health care provider, you get your own Provider Discussion Guide.
And please spread the word. There’s been a lot of talk about the health reform proposals coming out of Washington these days. Well, we’re offering a plan rooted in community activism, South Bronx style.
