“I’m thankful for the fact that in this moment, when every single one of us are being asked to re-evaluate, when every single one of us are being asked to understand our own complicity, when every single one of us are being asked to understand ‘what are you doing differently,’ and if your answer is ‘nothing,’ then you’re missing the point. If your answer is ‘nothing because we were doing it all right before,’ then I ask you to understand where we were before, and challenge that answer."

The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) stands with Dr. Anthony Fauci and encourages him to continue to ‘speak truth to power’ and to trust that the American people can handle scientific truths, and will stand behind informed, reasoned decisions that protect us from Covid-19. Abraham Lincoln said, ‘He has a right to criticize who has a heart to help.’ Under the Lincoln standard, President Trump and the current administration have not earned the right to criticize Dr Fauci, who has dedicated his long career to advancing public health and medical research.

It is up to us to advocate for policy decisions that reflect what is best for the public’s health. Through advocating and organizing as a community, we can hold departments and elected officials accountable to follow through on those decisions.

As public health professionals, we must hold ourselves and each other accountable for systemic racism and the role of racism in public health. Even though public health works to achieve a society in which all people live long, healthy lives (Healthy People 2020), there exist stark inequalities between the health status of Black and Brown Americans and that of White Americans. These differences are due to the underlying racism that persists in the field of public health. We must work as a community to reverse inequalities and provide justice for all.
