Date: September 21, 2017

Healthy Teen Network believes that addressing social and ecological conditions unique to members of historically marginalized populations (such as people who are women, First Nation/Indigenous, African-American, Latinx, Asian Pacific Islander, and/or LGBTQ+) is critical for these populations to achieve justice and equitable health and well-being outcomes.
