Physical, mental, and emotional health are the building blocks of a fair and just society. That requires access to comprehensive, high-quality health care, regardless of anyone’s income, race, or where they were born. It also means addressing systemic racism that has harmed the health of Black and brown communities. New Jersey can and should do more to allow all residents to lead healthy lives.
