You don’t need a college degree and you don’t need to recite Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to initiate change in your community. YOU can make a difference in your community through both political and non-political processes.

Follow the news. Learn about community issues. Discuss with friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Follow city leaders and elected officials on social media. Reach out to city leaders, elected officials, and other agencies/groups/organizations.

Although people may approach issues from a different point of view, ultimately, people care deeply about health and equity.

Register on our site to connect with people like you interested in starting or supporting healthy social, political, or environmental change in your community or school.

YOU can impact social and environmental factors that influence health, like equitable access to nutritious food and safe places to walk and play.
