On June 8th, 2020, Project Sleep issued this statement standing firmly in solidarity with our Black community members and unequivocally condemning racism. We also made specific pledges including, “to highlight sleep research focused on race, racism, and sleep and health disparities, as well as advocate for more research in this area.”
In furtherance of this pledge, Project Sleep worked with our health policy experts and the sleep health disparities research community to develop specific relevant policy recommendations. We will utilize these new recommendations in our fall advocacy efforts, kicking off with our Virtual Advocacy Training on Friday, Sept. 18th, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
