Forging Healthier Communities through Civic Engagement

Setup

When we vote, speak out at local meetings, volunteer to build a park, advocate for a cause, or create opportunities to connect with others, we take on the shared responsibility of nurturing our collective well-being. Civic engagement allows us to participate in the life of our communities, have our voices heard, and share power over the decisions that affect our lives. Inclusiveness is the watchword to foster belonging and a sense of purpose. From cultivating communal gardens to uniting a sisterhood of walkers to mobilizing healthcare providers to cast their ballots, three local leaders describe the interplay between meaningful participation and healthy communities.
