This talk draws on different moments, fictitious and non-fictitious, to explore our commitments to the anti-racist work needed to move towards health equity. It asks for an interrogation of what is meant by “health” and how that definition or those definitions inform/s what can be envisioned as health equity. By asking whether we are sure we want health equity is to invite reflection on our commitments and willingness to sacrifice over performative gestures and statements that often contradict stated goals.
