New Report: Powerful Communities
Health equity requires community power. We are deeply grateful to learn from the many organizations across Washington who are contesting and shifting power to create an inclusive democracy for liberation. We invite you to join us in learning from them in our new Powerful Communities report.
A liberated future starts with all of us
What happened to George Floyd in Minneapolis, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, and Tony McDade in Tallahassee has also happened here in Washington: to Charleena Lyles in Seattle, Lorenzo Hayes in Spokane, Dante Redmond Jones in the Tri-Cities, and Mi’Chance Dunlap-Gittens in Des Moines.
Group Health Foundation stands with communities who are protesting police brutality and demanding community-designed solutions for public safety.
Community at the center
Communities most impacted by inequities must be at the center of solutions. In each of Washington’s 39 counties, Black, Indigenous, and other people of color; people with disabilities; members of the LGBTQIA+ community; immigrants and refugees; people living with low incomes; and many who hold several of these identities are leading transformative work. Our funding prioritizes their efforts.
