HEAL Board officially launches work in white Horse Road Area

The 13 selected members of the  Health Equity Action Leadership Board make up a diverse, multi-cultural, and multi-lingual group that met for the first time at Greenville Multicultural Church on March 1, 2023. Meetings will continue 1-2 times a month thru May 2023. 

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝗼𝗮𝗹 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗱𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗽 𝗽𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗰𝘆 𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵𝘆 𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗵𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝗛𝗼𝗿𝘀𝗲 𝗥𝗼𝗮𝗱 𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗮.

All meetings will be bilingual with simultaneous interpretation! All HEAL Board members, action circle members, and facilitators will all be using headsets set to their chosen language channel to hear interpretation in the language they are most comfortable using ( English or Spanish). 

Our HEAL Board Action Circle members have been working hard over the past several months strategizing, recruiting, and designing the path for the new HEAL Board to embark on their leadership journey! 

The launch was a success and members are excited to get to work! Here is a look into our first HEAL Board Meeting this past Wednesday! 

Members worked through a vision board activity sharing their hopes and fears for the process of working together. 

Many mentioned that the live interpretation provided by HIT Services helped to truly make the meeting multi-cultural. 

As we work to Amplify Community Power, we have built into our budget compensation of all the HEAL Board members for their time in the form of stipends. We believe that those who are closest to the problem are best equipped to develop solutions, so we created space for their voices can be heard. These community members are the experts in our community and should be compensated for sharing their expertise. 

Special thank you to Greenville Multicultural Church for allowing us to use the space! 

We look forward to expanding our ability to amplify community power by facilitating meetings that truly incorporate the voices of 𝘢𝘭𝘭 of our neighbors.
