Policy change gives us the power to move health
and justice systems toward equity and fairness.
The Equitas Project Influences Policy
Policy change is one of several key strategies to course correct our practices toward greater health, justice, and prosperity.
Best practices and great policies are already in place in some communities. Others are being studied now.
Informing policymakers, spreading awareness, inspiring public support, and activating influential leaders are key ingredients to create change all across the country.
While preserving a nonpartisan agenda, The Equitas Project helps local and state communities define the elements of a just and prosperous society—one that prioritizes mental wellness over punishment and confinement.
We help leaders across the country accelerate policy change and practice reform by:
- Creating a shared language for advocacy
- Building consensus and multi-sector coalitions
- Getting the thoughtful recommendations of allied leaders into the hands of policy makers
