For far too long, discriminatory laws and policies have prevented people from living healthy lives.

Everyone deserves good jobs and schools, healthy food, safe neighborhoods, quality health care, and affordable housing. But some folks are excluded from accessing these basic needs because of unfair policies that create barriers to health in underserved communities. Changing existing laws and policies is the most effective method for undoing the harms of discriminatory policies and advancing health equity across America.

ChangeLab Solutions is proud to announce A Blueprint for Changemakers: Achieving Health Equity Through Law & Policy. This new resource presents legal strategies and best practices to help policymakers, practitioners, and communities improve health outcomes.

The Blueprint outlines ways to leverage the unique power and efficacy of local policy solutions, incorporate health in all policies, and engage diverse community members in the policy process. At its core, the Blueprint focuses on comprehensive strategies to address the fundamental drivers of health inequities.

ChangeLab Solutions developed A Blueprint for Changemakers in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and a national committee of advisors.

A new tool from No Kid Hungry allows summer meals advocates, program sponsors, and state agencies to easily and quickly access historical usage data from No Kid Hungry’s summer meals texting hotline (text “FOOD” or “COMIDA” to 877-877).

As summer meals partners plan for 2019, data gleaned from the texting hotline can yield insights about when and where families seek information about sites, whether sites were in operation when families texted, and general usage trends over time.

webinar recording is available to guide users on how to use the No Kid Hungry Summer Meals Texting Dashboard tool.
