The health of our communities depends on protecting the health of people facing the intersectional barriers of poverty, disability, and racism and discrimination.
The Compact is a collective call to action to policymakers, advocates and practitioners supporting health, choice, and equity, instead of institutionalization to realign priorities and funding for people who our systems have failed.
Communities Thrive When…
… we prioritize health, choice, and equity we prioritize the opportunity to live in a thriving community; a place people choose to call home that offers the healthcare, food, jobs, schools, childcare, and recreation necessary for life-long health and success.
Health is more than just access to healthcare, it’s also accessing healthy food options in your community.
Home should be in a community where people choose to live, not in institutional settings.
Centering race equity in disrupting the status quo is critical to achieving lasting systems change.
