Join us - 2nd Annual Health Equity Day on March 28

Please join us for the 2nd Annual Health Equity Day 2012 at the State Capitol on Wednesday, March 28.

Health Equity Day is a recognition of the power of our Asian, African, African American, American Indian, Latino, LGTBQ and allied communities coming together to fight for greater equity at the State and local levels in MN.


We seek systemic change across social factors that influence and can provide optimal access to health for all.

Free and open to the public.

Day starts at 9:30am across the street from Capitol at Southeast Asian Ministry with:
- community dialogue on health equity
- learning tools to identify systemic & social factors affecting health equity
- discussing how our communities currently advance health equity

Then we RALLY AT THE CAPITOL ROTUNDA at 12:30pm with Sen. Hayden, Rep. Champion and Rep. E Murphy.

More details available at:

Registration is required for morning session.
