Recent events remind us that deeply embedded inequities in health care access and health outcomes are rooted in historically white, and male, systems of power. A new series of JABFM policy briefs and accompanying commentaries will apply a critical perspective to topics of equity and diversity in the primary care workforce, and support a more inclusive and diverse array of collaborators and authors. In this commentary, we introduce the series and describe our hope that the policy briefs in this series, and their accompanying commentaries, will be used to inform, influence, challenge, and change practice, policy, organizational culture, and advocacy efforts toward systemic justice.
