Welcome to This Week in Equity Engagement on Twitter (TWEET) for the week of August 24, 2015. We have a lot of great stuff from social media this week, so let’s get right to it:

The Health for All movement to expand coverage to California’s undocumented immigrants took another step forward as Senator Ricardo Lara’s SB 4 passed out of the Assembly Appropriations Committee this week and will now be heard on the Assembly floor.

Journalist Jorge Ramos, who confronted Donald Trump earlier this week, continues to inspire all of us who advocate for the rights of undocumented immigrants.

Across California, there’s a great network of advocates and health professionals working to promote equity and improve the health of the state’s communities of color. This network has led to a vibrant online community filling social media with great resources on a daily basis. Here are some of the highlights as part of our inaugural This Week in Equity Engagement on Twitter (or TWEET for short…sorry!) feature on Voices for Health Equity:

The California Budget & Policy Center had an analysis on the California budget special sessions that resumed in full force this week after a month-long summer recess.

California Food Policy Advocates is conducting a survey to help guide their policy work. If you have a minute, fill it out and help out a great organization working to improve access to healthy foods.
