Equity Is In Our DNA
Our equity-focused approach engages the “head” (historical context, data) and the “heart” (fairness, justice) to create a perspective transformation that translates into ACTION.
We Make it Easy to be EquitableTM
We’ll help you Map, Make, Manage, Measure, and Master (The 5 Ms) change that ensures all people have opportunities for their best possible health and lives. It’s that simple.
We View the World Through an Equity Lens
To be equitable, we must consider who experiences the benefit and the burden of any decision, behavior, or action.
We develop people and organizations to produce health through equitable policies, programs, and practices.
Our World View
Your health is not an accident; it is a production of society.
Our vision is an America in which all people have equitable opportunities and neighborhood conditions to achieve their best possible health.
That means that no matter what we do in the world, it has an impact on our health and the health of people around us. ALL roads lead to health.
For the better part of 20 years, CommonHealth ACTION has worked with philanthropy, non-profits, businesses, governments, and community-based coalitions across the country to support their growth and development. As we design each engagement, our team applies evidence-based and experience-informed practices from our fields of expertise. Through our services, we support organizations as they seek to achieve their missions, which in turn helps us achieve ours.

Completing the Bridge to Nowhere: Beyond Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion alone won’t guarantee that all people have fair opportunities to achieve their full potential – but equity does. Without equity, we’ve made promises we can’t keep, started what we can’t finish, and built a bridge that leaves us dangling between where we were (a place of prejudice and inefficiency) and where we aspire to be (fairness and optimization). Equity, diversity, and inclusion (together) are the best way to make us bigger, faster, stronger, smarter, and better at doing what we do.
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.
Relationships are primary. All else is derivative.
Vision without action is merely a dream.
Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world.
Do more than belong: PARTICIPATE. Do more than care: HELP.
Do more than believe: PRACTICE. Do more than be fair: BE KIND.
Do more than forgive: FORGET. Do more than dream: WORK.
The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.
