Building Healthy Communities: What it Takes to Create Change
Building Healthy Communities is a 10-year, one billion dollar initiative that hopes to transform 14 California Communities. It is bringing together residents, grassroots organizations, policy makers and others to work on an action plan to address health inequality. Two local residents taking action are Lucy Herrera, of Boyle Height and Karla Ortiz of East LA. They discuss their work with local organizations and what is needed to create change in their communities.
