This section needs an excerpt. Edit me in "Issues -> Health Inequality"

Since your health depends more on a decent income, safe housing, education opportunities, fully social participation, etc. than on MRI machines, health inequality is a widespread problem in our society. Imagine the health of someone having financial problems, worrying about paying the rent, having no mo money for fresh fruits or vegetables, living in damp, bug-infested places, being unable to hire someone to watch your kids, holding a lousy job that leave him/her depressed and anxious or being unemployed and upset, having to beg for handouts, having bad teeth because you cant afford a dentist, having anxiety and fear of not making ends meet, thinking about suicide as a way out.

Imagine also the health of people facing racism, kids not wanting to sit with your child, having to explain why white people ignore your child, always wondering if racism is the cause of your child’s problems, being told vacant apartments just got rented having your heritage ignored in school books and history text, being stopped by the police or immigration officers much more often than others, blaming yourself for the bad treatment you get, getting angry for how you are treated, being paid less than you deserve.

In order to narrow inequality we seek to:

  • reduce income inequality via fair wages, fair taxes and better public services
  • reduce discrimination in favour of greater equity or inclusion
  • reduce corporate power in favour of greater democracy
