State Legislation and Policy During a Global Pandemic


As we look at ways to best support our communities through the pandemic recovery, we continue to support critical state policy discussions through Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiatives. This year, we are looking at how to best protect the health of our essential workers, support our most vulnerable communities such as our immigrant families, and continue to support state policies on topics identified on the BARHII and Rise Together Policy Platform, which prioritizes state bills such as a AB 1593 (immigrant rights and economic security), and AB 2405 (right to housing). Furthermore, key topics such as embedding Equity Officers into a county’s pandemic response can be seen on its COVID-19 Recovery Policy Platform.
