UCare condemns the killing of George Floyd and the racism traumatizing our community. For more than 35 years, UCare has embraced Minnesota’s diversity by serving people who often experience the most discrimination and injustice. Now we stand with those demanding meaningful and sustainable change to systemic racism in government, social and business institutions – including health care. In the aftermath of this tragedy, UCare moved swiftly to help our employees and members in affected neighborhoods access needed medications, urgent care and food. We organized volunteer efforts, and contributed funds and supplies to supporting organizations. UCare’s mission is to improve the health of our communities – particularly those impacted by unrelenting racism – and we pledge to listen, learn and act for justice and equity in our communities. If you have specific suggestions on how UCare can make meaningful change, send a message to listen@ucare.org.
