SUMMARY/BLURB ON KEY CAMPAIGN GOALS
- Public Health Advocates employs a Policy Advocacy Model that includes:
- Research and local data
- Policy Maker education
- Community Mobilization
- Partnership Building
- Media Advocacy
- Community engagement plays an important role in helping cities address health disparities in low-income and underserved communities. Cities recognize that engaging residents from underserved communities is critical to accurately identifying their needs and developing appropriate and effective strategies to address them.
- Community residents, usually organized by a local community-based organization, play two important roles:
- Creating demand for community priorities. Many cities attributed their success in advancing and sustaining Healthy Eating, Active Living-related changes in part to community buy-in because of residents identifying their needs and the city acting on them.
- Holding local decision-makers accountable for advancing health and wellness. Communities play an important role as outside champions for controversial policy issues. Resident advocacy helps ensure that efforts continue beyond the tenure of elected officials and their staff members.
