COVID-19 brought home how universal our drive for wellbeing is. COVID-19 and the nation’s attention to police violence have also brought widespread attention to the ways that our systems and communities are structured to provide access to wellbeing for some, and undermine access for others, based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, identity, religion, national origin and more. The result is that the same actions — whether applying for a job, feeding a family, seeking healthcare or going to school — by two individuals of, for example, different races, have vastly different outcomes. Sometimes these play out quickly, sometimes over a lifetime. But the differences between systems that enable some, and that hold others back, is real. And because wellbeing is the needs and experiences essential in combination and balance to weather challenges and have health and hope, these are effectively structural limitations on resiliency and health.
