Equity From The Frontlines

In partnership with the Center for Health Equity of the NYC Health Department and community stakeholders, photographers from VII Foundation documented Community Health Workers working with residents living in NYC neighborhoods that have experienced structural racism and have been marked by disinvestment.  By bringing these images to the forefront, we amplify their role in preventing diabetes, connecting people to services, and advocating for healthier communities.
