Promotoras’ Statewide Legislative Week of Action
May 1-5, 2023 • Sacramento & Virtual
The California Network of Promotoras and Community Health Workers (Network) was established as a forum for promotoras to participate in diverse trainings and exchange support, best practices, resources, and advocacy related to healthcare, social determinants of health, immigration, education, the workforce, and more. Promotoras and CHWs identify issues and community needs and organize and mobilize to inform policy and systems change. In each region, the Network brings promotoras together to share resources, participate in training, and coordinate community events and provides a forum to advocate behind key issues that strengthen families at the local and national level—including coordinating a California Promotoras’ Statewide Legislative Week of Action.
Each year Visión y Compromiso’s Network of Promotoras and Community Health Workers (Network) led by volunteer promotoras and supported by our team of Network Managers coordinate Promotoras’ Statewide Legislative Week of Action. Promotoras work year round in local and statewide policy priority areas of health, education, immigration and the promotora and community health worker (CHW) workforce. The first week of May Promotoras plan an event filled week along with a Promotoras’ Statewide Legislative Day of Action in California’s capitol. Highlighted below are more details on our legislative week of action alongside key advocacy materials.
