For nearly 30 years, CCSI has worked to improve quality of life and build stronger communities by helping local government, provider agencies, and not-for-profits develop and maintain critical programs, with a specific focus on the mental health, addiction, and human services so vital for community members with multiple and complex needs. It is with that history, mission, and with our whole hearts that we endorse the Greater Rochester Black Agenda Group’s May 19th Declaration “RACISM IS A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS.” We acknowledge the profound and inextricable link between racism and disparities in health and wellbeing across all dimensions. The violence of the past week only serves to underscore and punctuate this reality. We are committed to working to address the painful consequences of structural racism and joining hands with our partners who support this declaration.
