Pledge of Support

Portrait of Sonoma Banner 750

Pledge scroll 179 We have the vision of being the healthiest county in the state of California. We recognize that in order to achieve this goal, we must work together in strategic, thoughtful, and engaging ways. Our Collective Impact efforts to date have led to cross-sector collaborative partnerships and broad awareness of the multiple factors that influence our health, such as access to education, jobs, housing, transportation, and safe neighborhoods. We are committed to significantly improving the health and well-being of all residents.

However, we know that not all residents have access to the same opportunities to meet their full potential and that health, education, and income disparities exist depending on where one lives in the county. We also know that these disparities have real individual and community impacts on long-term health and prosperity.

We, below, commit to using A Portrait of Sonoma County to better understand these gaps in opportunities and to partnering with community to identify the strengths and assets on which to build a comprehensive and inclusive response to this report. We commit to utilizing A Portrait of Sonoma County in the work of our organizations and our collaborative efforts. We aim to leverage resources, empower communities, share best practices, and strategically focus our efforts in order to creatively contribute to a new and innovative discussion of health equity in our county. We recognize that only by working together as equal partners with a shared vision and common agenda can we hope to achieve our long-term goals of making Sonoma County the healthiest county in the state for all our residents to work, live, and play.
