In 2023 CHC will continue focusing on policy and systems change in the areas of health equity, reparations, and economic resiliency. Historically, CHC has been at the forefront of policy and systems change that improve the well-being of our communities and eliminate health disparities. Our work is wide-ranging covering healthcare, community and economic resiliency, and environmental justice, but always with a health and racial equity lens.
