OpenBiomeLogo-01

Racism is a public health crisis. Police brutality is a public health crisis. As a public health nonprofit, our mission is in support of access to healthcareā€”access that has been denied to Black communities through a centuries-long history of structural racism. Racial justice is a shared responsibility and our work is inextricably tied to a health system that has perpetuated inequalities in this country.

We join in support of our communities protesting, donating, and speaking out against the murders of Black people in America. We commit to challenging blatant and subtle forms of racism that show up in our work or organization across healthcare and medical research. Black lives matter.
