Happy Valentine’s Day! We at Migrant Clinicians Network are deeply in love in health justice -- and we’ve dedicated our lives to this work, even when it’s tough. Here are a few pieces MCN staff shared this week, with a double serving of the Weekly Win to lift our spirits as we head into the weekend.

Amy shared two new pieces from the Union of Concerned Scientists: a report entitled, “Endangering Generations: How the Trump Administration’s Assault on Science Is Harming Children’s Health” and a new storybook written like a picture book for children, but is definitely not for kids, called, “Breathe In the Smog, Drink In the Lead: A Grim Scary Tale for People Who Care about Kids.”
