People Power for Public Health aims to reform budget processes and reallocate resources to address longstanding health inequities and chronic underinvestment in the public health infrastructure in communities of color. COVID-19 racial and ethnic disparities in infections, hospitalizations, and deaths coupled with the murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others helped to expose local budgets that prioritize law enforcement and criminal justice at the expense of public health and social determinants of health.

People Power for Public Health uplifts the theory of change that communities of color know exactly what they need to live in thriving and healthy neighborhoods and deserve the power to fund their own community solutions.
