HELP JUMPSTART OUR FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN WITH a BROOKLYNGIVES FOR COVID-19 RELIEF MATCHING GRANT!!!
Since before the Covid-19 pandemic began, we were on the front-lines fighting health inequities. Now, with Covid claiming African Americans lives at three times the rate of White Americans, our work is more important than ever! Please donate to our institute today so that we can continue to get vital health information to our community partners and continue to train the next generation of healthcare professionals in our Health Science Academy. From now until June 30th, BrooklynGives for Covid-19 Relief will provide a $2,500 matching grant to our first $2,500 raised. Our goal is $25,000.
Thank you for your support!

Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health's Statement on Social Justice and Racism
Today, we are at a time in our history where human emotion, morality and righteous indignation are fueling a call to action and we need to urgently answer that call for systemic change. Therefore, we at the Arthur Ashe Institute, stand in solidarity with those in our nation and around the world against these heinous acts of racism.
