Where You Live Matters
Children born in neighborhoods with safe parks, fresh produce and clean drinking water can live up to 20 years longer than those born in less advantaged neighborhoods. In communities with poverty, poor air quality, stores that promote liquor and junk food, and a lack of sidewalks or parks, residents are much less likely to be healthy.
Who We Are
We are a movement advocating for health equity through power building, partnerships and narrative change rooted in inclusion and race.
We are residents, young people, community-based organizations, schools, and local government agencies coming together to address critical issues in order to create a #HealthyKernCounty for all.
What We Are Doing

In Kern, we promote community environments that have clean air, water, and land that is conducive to a healthy, active lifestyle for everyone.
