Join an organization at the forefront of health care advocacy around the nation

Community Catalyst is a national non-profit advocacy organization working to build consumer and community leadership to transform the American health system.

Since 1998, we have provided leadership and support to consumer organizations, policymakers and foundations working to ensure the health care system serves everyone – especially historically marginalized communities. Community Catalyst strengthens organized consumer voices in communities, at statehouses and on Capitol Hill when advocates fight for changes that improve our health.

As an organization, we believe an inclusive and open environment fosters creativity, contributes to the quality of our work, and provides growth opportunities for our employees. Additional information is available at www.communitycatalyst.org.
