If you are struggling in your journey today, perhaps you may find it helpful to ask yourself the question I asked myself every morning in those early days: “What do I need to be willing to do in order to give myself the best chance in my recovery today?”

The tumult of the last few months began with a global pandemic, progressed to economic turmoil and is culminating now in national outrage related to, among other longstanding injustices, the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and others. Black Americans have higher health risks associated with toxic environmental exposures (e.g. air quality) and lower access to health care.

Emancipation was only one battle won in the centuries-long struggle for Black Civil Rights – a struggle that is far from over. Racism continues to rear its head in every aspect of American life. Income and housing inequality, police brutality, voter suppression, hate speech, and political bigotry are just a few of the forms that racism still takes. One racial justice issue that doesn’t get discussed nearly as much as it should is healthcare equity. Toya Roberson-Moore, MD, Adult, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, explores the state of racial inequity in healthcare in this post.

In response to the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and others, along with many other longstanding injustices, ERC | Insight voiced its unconditional support of the anti-racist movement. We say it again: Black Lives Matter. We strongly reject racism, hate, and discrimination, as they run counter to what is good and ethical, and clearly stand in opposition to ERC | Insight’s core values.

We strongly reject racism, hate, and discrimination. They run counter to what is good and ethical, and clearly stand in opposition to ERC/Insight’s core values of compassion and integrity. But believing in values is never sufficient. We have an obligation to make sure that we are systematically living up to them as an organization.
