Healthy Communities of Opportunity
We must relentlessly embrace the conviction that everyone in America can and should live in communities of opportunity, where good schools, healthy environments, safe homes, quality jobs, and affordable transit provide the bedrock resources essential for realizing our full potential. To challenge longstanding racial and economic barriers, equity advocates from multiple sectors must join forces in manifesting this interconnected vision for community revitalization.
Our work includes confronting displacement and protecting renters’ rights, advocating for equitable infrastructure investments, cultivating inclusive social enterprises in an equitable food system, pushing for water justice and climate resilience, and supporting cradle-to-career policies and practices.

Healthy Food Access
Together, with The Food Trust and The Reinvestment Fund, PolicyLink created the nation’s first comprehensive healthy food access retail portal.
The Healthy Food Access Portal harnesses a vast array of data and information to support the successful planning and implementation of policies, programs, and projects for advocates, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders to improve access to healthy foods in low-income communities and communities of color.
