Health Equity

Christian Community Action

2021 - $25,000

This funding will support work by the grassroots advocacy group Mothers and Others for Justice to build capacity for health care advocacy through its Helping Everyone Achieve Lifetime Trusted Healthcare (HEALTH) subcommittee. This will include hosting a five-part Healthcare Institute to build knowledge, skills, and confidence in local residents who are interested in health care advocacy. In addition, the organization will survey residents of New Haven’s three lowest-income neighborhoods about their health care needs and challenges, and will help residents share their experiences with public officials to promote best practices and policy changes.
