Health Equity in Practice

Media Type: 

In 2021, in collaboration with the Division of Violence Prevention, Prevention Institute researched the ways that communities can achieve safety addressing structural racism. Based on that work and input from leaders and practitioners across the country, Prevention Institute developed this set of modules to assist violence prevention partners integrate health equity and racial justice into their practices, programming, and policy work. This module is based on the understanding that structural racism is a determinant of violence; racial justice is a determinant of safety.

These learning modules contain specific action steps that CDC program recipients, staff, and other partners can use to operationalize racial justice principles within their strategic approaches to preventing violence and promoting safe, thriving communities. Lessons include:

  • Module 1: Putting Principles to Practice
  • Module 2: Narrative Change, Framing, and Communications
  • Module 3: Advancing Policy, Systems Change & Resources

Module 1 reviews the racial justice principles while Modules 2 and 3 demonstrate how these principles are applied to two key strategies within the public health approach to addressing multiple forms of violence.

These modules were designed to support CDC program recipients, staff, and other partners can use to operationalize racial justice principles in their prevention work. Modules are available on Prevention Institute’s website.
