White Coats for Black Lives (WC4BL) is a medical-student run group that focuses on dismantling racism and centering liberation, particularly within healthcare. Emerging from White Coat Die-In demonstrations in 2014, the organization now has many national chapters. In today’s episode, we are joined by members of the WC4BL chapter in the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program. We cover topics including the legacy of activism and student activism in the Bay Area, the chapter’s focus on mentorship and scholarships for underrepresented students, and how to do activist work sustainably. Don't miss the article published on the chapter's mentorship program and give the chapter a follow on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
