CLICK HERE TO LEARN ABOUT THE VIRTUAL YOUTH SUMMIT

 

What is the Health Justice Summit?

The Health Justice Summit is an annual convening of community leaders and residents to provide education, inspire community action, and amplify our power to effect change. It is an opportunity to discuss new approaches to long standing challenges while recognizing that racial, social, and economic justice is fundamental in improving community health. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Health Justice Summit will be a series of virtual convening throughout the summer aimed at young people ages 14 – 26 to continue building a movement of community hope, healing and peace in Philadelphia.

More details coming soon! If you are interested to learn more or get involved, please email pilar.ocampo@phila.gov

What is Health Justice PHL?

Health Justice PHL is a coalition of community leaders in collaboration with Get Healthy Philly to advance the movement of Health Justice in Philadelphia.

We advance health justice by challenging the systems that have created disparities in health outcomes based on racial, social, and economic constructs.

The result of these efforts is a society in which every individual and community has equitable access to resources and opportunities for living long, happy and healthy lives.

How to Get Involved:

As Dr. Janice Johnson-Dias said in closing out the 2018 Health Justice summit, the “I” comes out of the “we” and it takes a coalition to ripple a system. The Health Justice Summit was just the start of our collective action, so if this idea interests you, and you want to play a leadership role in moving health justice forward in Philadelphia, please contact Xavier.Lofton@phila.gov.
