Healing through Policy is committed to supporting communities in addressing racism as a public health crisis through policy and practice change. In 2023, communities will have the opportunity to engage with Healing through Policy by applying to participate in a Community of Practice and/or a Solutions Sprint. More information about each opportunity is available on the FAQ page.
Community of Practice
Teams applying for the Community of Practice must represent communities that have declared racism a public health crisis and have identified a policy or practice goal to advance over six to 12 months. Teams must also have letters of support from local leadership.
The Community of Practice will begin in April 2023 and go through April 2024.
Learning Institute participant application period: January 5-February 2, 2023
General application period: January 17-February 15, 2023
Teams may also apply to the Solutions Sprint. Over six to 12 weeks, Results for America will offer workshops that will allow participants to learn from subject matter experts and peers to accelerate the implementation of a specific local policy solution aligned with the Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation framework.
The Solutions Sprint will begin in March 2023 and last for six to 12 weeks. The application will be available in early 2023.
