About Us

Healthier communities for all through better laws and policies

ChangeLab Solutions creates innovative laws and policies to ensure everyday health for all, whether that’s providing access to affordable, healthy food and beverages, creating safe opportunities for physical activity, or ensuring the freedom to enjoy smokefree air and clean water. Our solutions address all aspects of a just, vital and thriving community, like food, housing, child care, schools, transportation, public safety, jobs, and the environment.

Our work

Throughout the nation, we work with neighborhoods, cities, and states to transform communities with laws and policies that create lasting change. Our unique approach, backed by decades of solid research and proven results, helps the public and private sectors make communities more livable, especially for those who are at highest risk because they have the fewest resources.

In California alone, our work in tobacco control has helped save over $86 billion in healthcare costs and resulted in 25 percent fewer tobacco-related deaths. That’s just one area where we create solutions and help save money – just imagine how, working together, we can improve your community’s health, too! 

Our website is packed with model policies, how-to guides, fact sheets, and other policy tools: see our Tools for Change to start exploring.
