Public Health Awakened is building a more explicit social justice identity for public health professionals.

We are strengthening our leadership skills, creating a shared identity of activism, and deepening relationships with social justice movements.

Public Health Awakened provides opportunities to take action explicitly as a public health professional, in support of health equity and racial justice.

There’s many ways to get involved.

Our goal is to advance member-led activities and actions across national and local levels. There’s the opportunity to develop resources, participate in workgroups, help build local chapters, and more.

We can provide training, coaching, and technical assistance along the way to strengthen members’ own skills to organize and advocate for health equity — taking ideas and turning them into action.
