Of Free Urban Community Health & Medicine Survival Programs; That Were Collectively Initiated By Both The Black Panther Party & The Young Lords Party!
“We believe that the government must provide, free of charge, for the people, health facilities which will not only treat our illnesses, most of which have come about as a result of our oppression, but which will also develop preventive medical programs to guarantee our future survival. We believe that mass health education and research programs must be developed to give all Black and oppressed people access to advanced scientific and medical information, so we may provide our selves with proper medical attention and care” – March 29,1972
