Healing through Policy: Creating Pathways to Racial Justice

Through resolutions, executive orders, and other mechanisms, local leaders are declaring racism a public health crisis and committing to addressing systemic health and racial inequities. Local leaders are exploring the policies and practices that are most needed to move from commitment to action and how to best use policy to effect meaningful change toward health, racial equity, and justice. The initiative has identified a suite of racial equity policies and practices that can be implemented at the local level to promote racial healing and address social inequities.
