The Assembly and Senate have proposed a $100 million annual investment in the California Health Equity and Racial Justice Fund. This would provide resources to expand or start new efforts to:
1) Address the root causes of health inequities; and/or
2) Transform existing institution and government systems to promote racial justice. Community-based organizations, clinics and tribal organizations would be eligible applicants for this new source of funding.
Please join us in telling Governor Newsom this fund needs to stay in the final budget.
Decisions are happening quickly and so we only have a few days.
Together we can build a healthier, more equitable California.
