EQUITY PRINCIPLES

A Commitment to Equity: CA4Health Equity Principles

CA4Health has been exploring how our program office and members can collectively embody our commitment to health equity. Following PolicyLink’s Equity Summit in April, members of our CA4Health delegation collaborated to craft a set of intentions related to equity that will keep the energy and lessons alive for our network. Our first outcome from these discussions is CA4Health's Guiding Principles for Health Equity and Justice. These principles express our commitment to equity and will inform how we assess what policies and/or actions CA4Health will support.

Street Story: A Platform for Community Engagement

Street Story is a community engagement tool that allows residents, community groups and agencies to collect information about transportation collisions, near-misses, general hazards and safe locations to travel. The platform and the information collected is free to use and publicly accessible. The tool was created by a team of city planners, public health professionals, engineers, social welfare experts and computer scientists at UC Berkeley’s Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC).
