Our work is centered in the fight for justice – health, racial, economic and social.
We focus our health care advocacy in four key areas: affordability, access, accountability, and anti-racism/equity.
We center our call to action in the stories of real people who struggle to get the care they need and can afford. The stories we hear are powerful reminders of the shortcomings in our systems – not just in health care, but across the board in so many parts of our lives. These stories also provide hope and fuel for action and change.
We listen to our grassroots partners and community leaders to learn what they need and want. What is their vision of justice?
We work in coalitions that share our values to build power for health and other forms of justice.
