Bay Area households struggle to make ends meet and access basic needs such as affordable food and housing.
10 Public HealtH Departments WITH 200+ PARTNERS
We're leveraging the power of 9 counties and their health departments to create health equity and economic opportunity for all through collective action, shifting systems that are no longer working and redefining what is possible for Bay Area residents.
"Addressing poverty can in part be done at the local level, but the bigger question is what will it take to build a broader base of constituent interest to win? The constituent base to win and glued together is at the regional level—aligning local and county programs and budgets in a regional context that can also impact and inform legislative action at the state level. That is why we need Rise Together."
