Equity in Action: Policymaking for Community Health

A series of trainings for changemakers

How are leaders from different sectors taking action to support family stability and advance a more equitable and inclusive economy?

How can we create and support processes that shift power and decision making to community members?

What strategies can promote equitable enforcement across sectors?

ChangeLab Solutions has launched a four-part virtual engagement series to explore actionable strategies for achieving health equity in communities across the United States. These engaging discussions with community, local, and state leaders focus on moving from acknowledging issues to taking action. In each episode, the speakers share innovative policy strategies and solutions that support post-COVID economic recovery and help rebuild our systems and institutions in ways that address structural inequities.
