Place Matters Workgroups
The Alameda County Place Matters Team recognizes that our environment – social, economic, political, built – shapes us. Therefore, we focus on what shapes the environment: policy.
We are working for equity in: education, economics, criminal justice, housing, land use, and transportation. We work collaboratively with multiple sectors and community-based organizations to advance health equity. We frame key policy issues through the lens of health equity, and provide analysis of emerging policy areas where this perspective is overtly absent. Place Matters supports the good work already in progress at the community level, and avoids duplication of effort through robust and proactive community collaboration.
