TWEET: Prison Spending, Climate Change, Farm Bill, and More Generate Social Media Discussion

Welcome to This Week in Equity Engagement on Twitter (TWEET) for the week of November 2, 2015. Once again, we have a bunch of great social and environmental justice discussion to highlight. Let’s get to it!

California’s prison spending continues to pace the country.

More and more people around the world are starting to recognize the realities of climate change and are willing to do something about it.

Los Angeles is drafting a declaration on climate change.

Plan Bay Area is working to promote equity and affordability in the region.

Another study shows the dramatic impact the Affordable Care Act has on the country’s uninsured population.

UC Berkeley reviewed the Farm Bill and found some pretty striking inequities in the U.S. food system.

One of our founding ethnic partners, the Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum, shared some strategies to promote equity in prescription drugs.

The Kaiser Family Foundation has a great new report about the social determinants of health.

And finally, UC Berkeley has begun a very cool project to restore century-old recordings from California’s Indian populations.
