We acknowledge, currently and historically, that organizations led by people of color face more barriers and receive less funding than white led organizations. As breaking down racial and health disparities is key to the Voices for Healthy Kids mission, we are committed to increasing funding to organizations and campaigns that have leadership that is American Indian, Alaska Native, Pacific Islander, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino/a, or Asian American.
