"we realized the need to imagine a new type of medicine and public health - one that is intersectional, inclusive, and justice-oriented with a preferential bent towards helping those most marginalized in society" Health activism through organizations like the Black Panther Party
"Critical theory(i.e. critical race studies, feminist theory, gender and sexuality studies, LGBTQ studies, queer theory, etc) is at the epicenter of knowledge production on how identity, power, and privilege impact lived experiences of injustice and discrimination of communities"
