UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on March 9 at 3:00 PM for a discussion about the Coalition of Concerned Medical Professionals (CCMP) and the Fight for Comprehensive Healthcare via Zoom. The panel will feature CCMP Bay Area Operations Manager, Olivia Rodriguez, RN, and CCMP staff, Luz Mejia Mas, Sean Spangenberg, and Alicia Sanchez. CCMP has been fighting for comprehensive health care for low-income workers since 1976 without receiving any government funding. Now, their work is needed more than ever with the Bay Area in the grips of a pandemic.
Since CCMP’s inception, their benefit's program has been under the supervision and control of the lowest paid workers, which are mostly people of color. CCMP says, “These are the people who have been systematically denied health and healthcare since this country began, and it is only being exacerbated now.”
This event was planned by a diverse group of UCSF staff who organized in response to the ongoing racial injustices. The goal of the UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice monthly speaker series is to promote critical thinking and action around intersectional structures of power, privilege, and racial oppression in clinical care, education, and beyond. We will continue to highlight the efforts of community antiracism activists.
