Today we take a moment to reflect on the state of our nation, to recognize the pain being felt across the country from the killing of George Floyd and those before him, to share our support for the Black Community and all people of color, to reject any form of racism, hate, bigotry and violence, and to express our hope to be part of the solution and change that needs to occur to deal with systemic racism and oppression.
The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics was built on the fundamental premise that health care is a right and not a privilege. As an organization, we value human dignity and access to quality, compassionate health care. Our membership consists of Free and Charitable Clinics and Pharmacies who provide access to quality health care for medically underserved people and seek to address health equity for our patients.
As our nation reels from the recent events and deals with so much pain, we take this moment to share not only our support for the Black Community and the need to end systemic racism, but we also want to share how we hope to be part of bringing change, how we aspire to be part of the solution.
