About us: The Katal Center for Health, Equity, and Justice works to strengthen the people, policies, institutions, and movements that advance health, equity, and justice for everyone. We have three big, interrelated goals:
- building leadership and organizing capacity of neighborhood residents, organizers, advocates, and community groups, to effectively drive and shape systemic change;
- ending mass criminalization, mass incarceration, and the war on drugs; and
- advancing evidence-based solutions to promote and secure health, equity, and justice.
Our experience has taught us that through effective community organizing, informed by an analysis of systemic racism, we can take on critical problems -- like mass criminalization -- turn them into winnable issues, and make real changes in the lives of our members and communities.
