Community Health Centers Have a Proud and Storied History of Advocacy
Community health centers are invaluable to our communities and our state. They not only care for over 6.5 million Californians, they also are major economic contributors. Any person, regardless of insurance status or background, is welcome at a community health center. Yet, despite being such a vital resource they are often fighting to retain support and funding for services. We invite you to learn more about the community health center in your community and learn about the wide array of work they do on behalf of all people in California- such as fighting for coverage and access for all, securing more resources and access to fight the opioid epidemic, building the future health care workforce, plus much, much more.
Collectively, health centers are supported in their advocacy efforts through CaliforniaHealth+ Advocates. Sign up today to learn more about current issues impacting the health and services in your community. You will receive monthly stories about the vital work community health centers are engaged in across the state, updates on important health center activities and organizational newsletters.
