Health Rights Organizing Project

The Health Rights Organizing Project is a collaboration of grassroots community organizations around the country. The project is co-coordinated by the "Center for Community Change", and the Northwest Federation of Community Organizations. Each member organization is committed to securing quality, affordable health care for all.

We are committed to promoting the well-being of all members of our communities.

We believe the call for health care for all should arise from the grassroots, with diverse leaders from across the country at the forefront.

Convening Organizations

America’s Future Starts with Healthy Children campaign is led by the project’s SCHIP subcommittee, whose members include:


In February 2008, we coordinated a multi-racial/multi-ethnic coalition of grassroots organizations in a press conference at the Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C., to demand health care for all kids.  In July 2008, we launched the America’s Future Starts with Healthy Children Campaign.
