LIFE and DEATH from UNNATURAL CAUSES
HEALTH AND SOCIAL INEQUITY IN ALAMEDA COUNTY
As part of a grant from The California Endowment, Breakthrough Communities is engaging people of color throughout California in informing and implementing Health in All Policies
(HiAP) Task Force recommendations in order to respond to the
Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act (SB375) and address
health disparities caused by land use and transportation policies.
Communities has gathered information on health disparities in five
metropolitan areas across the state and engaged in dialogue and planning
workshops about SB 375 with NGO leaders of social movements and
representatives of vulnerable communities. With Gamaliel of California we are co-creating workshops in both Spanish and English designed to reach these communities by developing and distributing a Climate Change, Sustainable Community Strategies, and Health Equity toolkit for use by community groups in the SB375 process that highlights the "6 Big Wins" and generates concrete policy recommendations that address the fatal disparities from which our communities suffer.
