Event Description

Leveraging and engaging community members are important elements to creating more equitable communities. Across California, the power of community organizing, mobilization, and civic engagement drives change. Please join CA4Health in a Web Forum co-hosted by Dialogue4Health and the California Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (CaLAPH, a project of the Center for Health Leadership and Practice) to hear stories from California where the community’s voice is influencing change.

This Web Forum will include highlights from:

  • The VOTA! Campaign in the Eastern Coachella Valley
  • Diabetes education and soda tax efforts in Watsonville
  • Transforming an anchor institution in Richmond
