About Voices for Health Justice

The Voices for Health Justice Project is building the power of health care consumer advocates with a focus on grassroots organizing, racial justice and anti-racism. As the lead partner on the project, Community Catalyst is collaborating with Community Change and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities to provide 25 project grantees across 24 states financial resources and technical assistance based on Community Catalyst’s system of advocacy. Each of these 25 projects emphasizes building the power of people at the grassroots level to demand and win health system policy change at the national, state and local level.

The Voices for Health Justice Project recognizes that too often, people confront a health care system that fails to meet their needs. People of color, low-income people, people in rural communities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ people and others face health inequities rooted in discrimination and structural racism. Building on the tremendous advances made possible by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Voices for Health Justice supports projects seeking to build a community-driven, community-responsive health system by galvanizing the power of people and communities to demand and win change in how that system operates.
