DSHS recently provided employees with an outstanding opportunity to hear from famed American philosopher Dr. Cornel West! His talk was entitled “Justice is what love looks like in public” and he further discusses how we must serve others, particularly those who have been oppressed and isolated in cycles of poverty. The Princeton professor, prolific author, and champion for racial justice, spoke for about an hour to the delight of hundreds of employees through Zoom.
The video below is the recording of the talk so that you too can experience Dr. West’s discourse and wisdom.

REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS – Environmental Justice Community Participation Fund Grant
The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is excited to announce the formation of an Environmental Justice Community Participation Fund Grant program. The aim of this program is to award a $400,000 pass-through grant to a statewide community-based environmental justice organization for the creation of an Environmental Justice Community Participation Fund. This Fund will be used to allocate smaller sub-grants to other community-based organizations around Washington State to support meaningful participation and engagement with the Environmental Justice Council and state agencies around the Healthy Environment for All (HEAL) Act.
