Coalition Building for Equity and Prevention
Coalition building is a key public health improvement strategy that enables diverse community members to work toward common goals, leverage resources, share emerging and best practices and achieve sustainable change. CCP’s 25-year history of building collaborations to address the social determinants of health informs all our work.
We Help Build Advocacy
We help build the capacity of coalition members to lead advocacy and social change efforts with training, leadership development and facilitated processes. We assist collaborative groups in developing a sound infrastructure, governance agreements and action plans to help members work together effectively. Our asset-based approach and commitment to equity ensures that the talents and skills of those most affected by the problems are engaged in developing solutions, especially people of color, youth and low-income communities.
