Human Impact Partners transforms the field of public health to center equity and builds collective power with social justice movements.

A COVID-19 Public Health Response & Recovery Policy Platform

“Decades of underinvestment in our public infrastructure and neoliberal policies that gutted protections for working people, our healthcare, and our wider safety net are vividly exposing their consequences. People of color — most harshly Black, Latinx, and Native people — are disproportionately experiencing the consequences of these conditions. In this context, directly impacted communities are naming and working towards transformative solutions around areas including the criminal legal system, housing security, economic security, and healthcare access. Public health needs to act on solutions led by directly impacted communities.”

Check out their cross-sector policy platform, that if implemented, would challenge the conditions that create inequities in health outcomes.
