The Family Voices United to End Racism Against Children with Special Health Care Needs and their Families (FamU) project was created in 2020 to address and dismantle racism in the health care of Black CYSHCN and their families. The toolkit features a variety of documents, multi-media articles, videos, and other relevant resources focused on three key objectives:

  1. Build Competence by learning about the history of race in the U.S. and racial disparities in health care;

  2. Foster Connectedness by creating opportunities to engage in raw, honest, uncomfortable conversations necessary to bring about change; and,

  3. Encourage Confidence to Act with the creation of materials and resources to equip toolkit users to start, lead, and sustain conversations to dismantle racism in the health care of Black CYSHCN in their own locality.
