CA Convergence

This powerful statewide network links communities, policy advocates, and others
to transform the environment for health

California Convergence is a community-driven, statewide network of community coalitions and local advocates, working with state advocates and other partners, to create safe, healthy and equitable communities where all people can thrive.

Organized into six emerging regions throughout the state, California Convergence connects communities with others doing similar work for peer to peer learning and coordinated policy action.

Through the California Convergence, community leaders:

  • Learn from each other about how to make local change
  • Connect to form a collective local, regional and statewide voice for change
  • Sustain local work by influencing state and national policy

Partnership for the Public's Health coordinates and staffs the California Convergence network.
