The Gaza Mental Health Foundation stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement to demand justice for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor and so many others, and fundamental change in a policing system that has for far too long devalued the lives of Black people.  We stand with all who have experienced mental anguish, violence and death through unjust oppression.  We stand for health and healing, in recognition that a society that dehumanizes is a society that can never thrive.
