Children’s HealthWatch Comments on Advancing Racial Justice and Equity and Support for Underserved Communities at USDA

On July 15, Children HealthWatch submitted comments to USDA regarding its plan to advance racial justice and equity. We elaborate on ways to identify and eliminate barriers in USDA programs and services, and suggest strategies that would allow USDA to establish and maintain connections to a more diverse set of stakeholders representing underserved communities. Additionally, we reference previous comments that we submitted to USDA in response to several opposed regulatory rule changes.
