Advocacy: Bringing Change to Your Community

CHWs witness health disparities and inequity in their communities that are often exacerbated by social determinants of health. They are in a unique position to be the voice for their clients who are unable to speak up because of fear or oppression. CHWs have the opportunity to advocate at the organizational, community, and state levels on issues of public health to influence change.  INCHWA is here to help the CHW do just that. Contact us today with your story so that we can help you to advocate for positive change in your community.

In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems.
For issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.

- Albert Einstein
