Support the Liberate Medicine Campaign:

In December of 2017, students from the School of Medicine at the University of Washington organized a sit-in to call attention to the school's ongoing and rampant racism. Despite promises that the school would engage in immediate corrective actions following a Call to Action in May of 2016, conditions at the school have worsened under the leadership of Dean Paul Ramsey and Chief Diversity Officer Leo Morales.  

We believe this can change, and that a truly liberatory medicine that centers the wisdom and knowledge of oppressed peoples both locally and globally is possible. This starts with new, bold anti-racist leadership at the School of Medicine and the allocation of significant financial resources to start a Liberation Medicine School, which will be run by healers who are rooted in and committed to the liberation of communities of color.   

To support the Liberation Medicine Now Campaign, please sign this petition to demand University of Washington President AnaMari Cauce and the School of Medicine take the following actions:

  1. Allocate $500,000 per year for the establishment of a Healing Justice Fund and for the implementation of a community-run Liberation Medicine School.
  2. Provide full tuition scholarship for Black and Indigenous medical students starting with the entering class of 2020.
  3. Require the resignation of University of Washington School of Medicine Dean Paul Ramsey from the position of Dean.
  4. Require the resignation of Leo Morales from the position of Chief Diversity Officer of UWSOM and the restructuring of the Center for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

More details about these demands can be found here.
