Join a national organization committed to advancing a movement to race equity and health justice.

Community Catalyst is a leading non-profit national health advocacy organization dedicated to advancing a movement for health equity and justice. We partner with local, state and national advocates to leverage and build power so all people can influence decisions that affect their health. Health systems will not be accountable to people without a fully engaged and organized community voice. That’s why we work every day to ensure people’s interests are represented wherever important decisions about health and health care are made: in communities, state houses and on Capitol Hill.

Community Solutions for Health Equity is a program of Community Catalyst, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The focus of CSHE is elevating the voices, stories, and priorities of communities of color and other communities often left out of discussions within local health care systems. The CSHE program attempts to address issues of systemic racism at the local health care level by supporting communities that have identified a problem that negatively affects them, and partnering with health care systems to implement practices of equity. The CSHE program works closely with 11 grassroots organizations from 11 states providing resources needed to support their ability to uplift community priorities, build partnerships, and develop effective strategies that will lead to health care system transformation.

Community Solutions for Health Equity also collaborates with a National Advisory Council made up of 20 members representing diversity in region, culture, ethnicity and lived experience, to provide guidance and to leverage influence with their local health care systems.

The Program Coordinator will have the ability to work independently on projects and must be able to work under pressure at times to handle a wide variety of activities (e.g., funding proposals/reports) and confidential matters with discretion.
