I would love to hold space to talk about the word resilient it has a negative connotation in many Black communities because we should not have to be resilient in response to racism and oppression. Often that word is used to celebrate us and at the same time deny communities the resources they need. I know that was not the intent here, but it is important to raise in our use of language

VA House of Delegates passed a package of voter suppression bills just yesterday, including restrictions on absentee voting and stricter photo ID requirements. Hopefully, they won't survive the Senate. But good point that this effort is alive and well in VA today...

I haven't read this in full yet, but Health Affairs just published an article about the historical policies and events that led to the health disparities in DC that may be of interest to this group: https://www.healthaffairs.org/doi/epdf/10.1377/hlthaff.2021.01805

Yes-- thank you for noting that Amanda. Resilience can often invoke a deference to racialized capitalism.

What word is suggested ?
Maia Falconi-Sachs

Is it an issue of the word itself or the concept? I imagine both

@sarah, thank you for the great article share re health equity. I wondered if Dr. Woolf looked at the health lens in his research of NoVA.

Thank you Pat for your leadership on this incredible report. Many in NoVA want to talk about equity in broad terms and not focus on the racialized history of this community and this is so helpful in grounding those conversations.
