Home / Coalition on Economic Resiliency

The Coalition on Economic Resiliency was created in September 2019 by the Social Change Institute at Community Health Councils. In our first convening, we invited 100 leaders from Los Angeles to dialogue on ten different topics:

Plus, we were fortunate to have Additional Members that were not a part of the working group. Special thanks to LA Care Health Plan, The Federal Reserve of San Francisco in Los Angeles and the Weingart Foundation.

In the Lift Up from the first meeting, a smaller group detailed a separate dialogue on Leveraging Capital Markets for Economic Resiliency. Special thanks to Lisa Richter of Avivar Capital for her presentation.

Our next meeting will be on March 16 at a TBD location. Featured speakers will be Dr Manuel Pastor of USC and Dr Chris Benner of UC Santa Cruz. This convening is invite only and all inquiries should be sent to Michelle Burton at  mburton@chc-inc.org
