State Leaders Vote for Safe and Healthy Spaces


We are so grateful to Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII) for its leadership and success in advancing health equity (BARHII Legislative Platform) at the state level. As the Bay Area’s collaborative of local health departments, BARHII supports healthy and equitable state policies. In addition to the policies that we mention throughout this newsletter, we saw decisive action from our state legislators on creating safe and healthy spaces starting with having safe clean air centers to mitigate health impacts during fires (AB 836), and safe workplace policies that expand lactation accommodations (SB 142).
