WE ARE WYANDOTTE

This report reveals how environmental factors have a bigger impact on health than we could possibly imagine. Over three years of intensive study, the researchers uncovered massive opportunities in creating/sustaining health equity among a large section of our community. Historical property value discrimination (through redlining in the 1930’s) has snowballed over time into our neighborhoods suffering from inadequate housing, lack of access to adequate health care, and environmental health injustices.

H.E.A.T. ON HEALTH INEQUITIES

Over three years of intensive study, we uncovered massive opportunities in creating/sustaining health equity among a large section of our community. Historical property value discrimination (through redlining in the 1930’s) has snowballed over time into our neighborhoods suffering from inadequate housing, lack of access to adequate health care, and environmental health injustices.

The H.E.A.T. Report may have solidified what was known to those involved in the community for years but what remained was where to go from here, how do we address these long term injustices and their consequences on a community?

What Can We Say For that Which

is Unspeakable?

Locally written and illustrated, this comic book series details more of the information found in the H.E.A.T. Report, as well as the steps necessary to start correcting some of these opportunities.

This fresh take does its best to explain the difficulties facing the residents of a relined community from the old, to the young and even those not yet born.

Resident's Eyes

The We Are Wyandotte video series was released through our social media channels and website as we seek to highlight the vulnerable populations impacted by redlining and the impact felt throughout their community.

These videos provide vital information on the lives of those impacted by the factors we’re discussing, as well as possible solutions to them. From neighborhood to neighborhood, everyone involved shares one major quality: a love of community and the ardent desire to see these health outcomes improve.
