Health Justice Now Webinar Series Part 4: Community Voices: How State Policymakers Can Advance Health Equity
This is part 4 of the Health Justice Now series.
As lawmakers across the U.S. work to address the country’s health inequities, community-based voices remain an important and necessary piece for setting policy agendas. Fifty community leaders fighting for health equity and racial justice in their states joined forces to compile recommendations for state reforms to improve access to culturally-centered health care.
During this webinar, several of these community leaders highlight key priorities for state policymakers to consider and candidly share some of the challenges they faced. They also share some of the lessons they learned in hopes of better preparing and equipping attendees to further advance priorities with policymakers in their states. For additional information and background on the compiled report, view Community Voices: Recommendations to State Policymakers for Advancing Health Equity.
