As a member of the health center community, there are many opportunities to advocate for health centers and your patients.

Engaging in advocacy improves our community and strengthens our health care system. We regularly work on policies that increase access to health care, break down barriers to mental health services, address homelessness, immigration, and other issues that touch our community.

Advocacy cannot be done alone – it is a team sport. We need to raise our voices together to make sure we are heard and remain a priority for each of our legislators.

What do I do now?

  • Sign up for our Grassroots Action Network, called CaliforniaHealth+ Advocates
  • Attend an advocacy training
  • Educate yourself on our state and federal public policy issues
  • Take action when asked

Contact Bethany Snyder, RCHC’s Advocacy Consultant (bsnyder@rchc.net), for more information or for more actions you can take!
