The Beyond Rhetoric project started in response to Genesee County commissioners passing a resolution formally recognizing racism as a public health crisis. Genesee County, which includes the city of Flint, is among the hundreds of municipalities across the country that have acknowledged how racism contributes to disparate health outcomes for people of color compared to white people. With support from U-M Poverty Solutions, faculty from the University of Michigan and Michigan State University formed a research team to work with the community and support the project.
