We Exist To Serve Our Communities
The Community Health Board Coalition (CHBC) is a community-led organization that works to improve the health outcomes in our refugees, immigrants, and BIPOC communities in Western Washington through policy and systems change. We represent 16 BIPOC communities who are mostly immigrants, refugees, and people of color, representing historically underserved communities.
Advocacy & Recommendations
Even before COVID-19 became a pandemic in our region, CHBC had been pushing to ensure our communities’ rights in education, health care, mental health were upheld and their humanity recognized by a system that for so long has failed to value them in a meaningful way.
Covid-19 has put these concerns into starker relief. As a result, CHBC is working closely with community partners to lift BIPOC, immigrant and refugee communities voices since they have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
