Community Catalyst is a leading 501(c) 3 non-profit national health advocacy organization dedicated to building a movement for health equity and justice. We partner with local, state, and national advocates to leverage and build community power so all people can influence the decisions that impact their health.

Follow us on Twitter @CommCatHealth.


Our State Consumer Health Advocacy Program works with partners in more than 45 states to build consumer leadership and a strong, organized consumer voice to shape health policy and transform the health system at the federal, state, and local levels.
