Communities understand their needs and strengths best. Ensuring those communities have more say in which issues get addressed is the best way to build lasting, more equitable solutions to health disparities and domestic violence.
Currently, many public systems designed to help our society’s most vulnerable communities fail to meet their needs. To bridge this gap, these public systems need to be equipped to prioritize racial equity and work closely with the communities they serve.
We advocate for solutions such as community-led processes, strategic policy shift, narrative change, and collaborative efforts that bring multiple sectors together to prioritize health and well-being. By fostering stronger and more responsive relationships between communities and systems, we support greater resilience in both.
Meaningful change happens when public systems and communities are actively engaged in dialogue about the best ways to prevent health inequities and domestic violence.
