Our Work

Community-led and equity-driven, our work with local leaders in 35 states has underscored the importance of community context.

We recognize that community members’ experiences often reveal which policy, environment, or systems changes will have the most impact and be the most sustainable. We have championed authentic community engagement as an essential practice for lifting up and learning from local realities. And equity has formed the foundation of our approach from the start: since 2002, we have focused on populations at highest risk for health disparities based on factors such as race, income, and geographic location.
