Communities RISE logo

Communities RISE Together supports vaccination efforts in Black, Asian-American/Pacific-Islander, Latinx, Native-American, rural, immigrant/migrant and low-income older adult populations, working on the ground in more than 220 counties in 27 states with low vaccination rates by calling on the capacity of 2,400 community-based organizations who reach over 100 million people across the nation. The initiative is a collaboration between WE in the World and their Well Being In the Nation (WIN) Network and the Public Health Institute, and funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Partners in Communities RISE Together include CHROMATIC BLACK, the Center for Popular Democracy, the Hawai’i Public Health Institute, Latino Health Access, the Migrant Clinicians Network, Meals on Wheels America, National Councils on Aging, National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, the Public Health Institute’s Center to Advance Community Health and Equity, and WE in the World/WIN Network.  

Communities RISE Together is co-led by Somava Saha, Executive Lead of WE in the World and the WIN Network, and PHI’s Kevin Barnett.

Build skills for boosting vaccine access, with resources, toolkits, training materials and more.
