The City's health department is hosting a meeting to get feedback on the outcomes from the recent resolution on health equity that you all helped get passed. The results will be presented for feedback from community at this meeting. If you care about racial disparities in Austin, come out and VOICE your opinion.

The City of Austin passed a resolution on May 7th to establish an Equity Assessment Tool for the city. This resolution passed as a result of the organizing work of our grassroots coalition. As a step towards creating the Equity Tool, the resolution mandated the city to create a working group to address health inequities.

Mama Sana/Vibrant Woman, allgo, the Alliance for African American Health of Central Texas (AAAHCT), and the organization previously named Austin Immigrant Rights Coalition are stakeholders in that working group. At this meeting, our community coalition will be co-presenting with staff from the Health Department. We will be proposing that the City of Austin include funds in its 2016 budget to address health disparities with community based projects that are holistic, culturally specific, non-traditional, and based in community organizing.
