Prospera Institute is an early-stage, independent research tank informing the public about the attitudes and trends shaping health in Latino, Black and Indigenous communities domestically and globally. Dedicated to prospering racial health, we envision a world of racial health equity for our respective communities. We bring together community stakeholders, ethicists and lay persons while applying ethical reasoning to the most challenging health equity problems in medicine, science and cultural societies.
Our mission is catalyzed through research, education and social action engaging Latino, Black and Indigenous communities in efforts that advance racial health equity.
We will share power with community stakeholders - engaging them in programs, research, conversations and social action strategies.
We will intentionally reinvest into communities
and emerging leaders placing community where they deserve to be - at the center of our mission.
Cultural Humility & Agility
We will approach our work with humility, understanding that our target communities are a rich resource.
We will always hold the best interests of Latino, Black and Indigenous communities’ members while not distancing ourselves from historical patterns that have fostered health inequality.

Prospera Institute, Boston, humbly acknowledges that the places where we eat, sleep, pray and work sits within the traditional, ancestral and stolen land of the Massachusetts Ponkapoag /ˈpɒŋkəpɔːɡ, tribe whose name was appropriated by this Commonwealth. We continue to survive honoring the elders through cultural practices; expressive arts ie.“areytos”/storytelling, prayer, reflection thus resisting systemic oppression and reclaiming liberation in public health and social practices.
YOU, TOO, CAN TACKLE HEALTH EQUITY THROUGH SOCIAL ACTION.
Your generous support and contributions enable us to fulfill our mission and meet our strategic priorities.
We thank you for your support.
