Community Health Councils

Policy Analyst

• I serve as the organization's in-house expert on open and green space policy. In this capacity I provide policy analysis and development in 3 key areas: community land access, park systems, and physical activity resources. I work on CHC's flagship projects including a Community Transformation Grant and policy development for the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Demonstration project.

• I lead LA Open Acres, a community powered tool created by Community Health Councils to transform vacant spaces to healthy places. The project aims to get community-maintained projects like community gardens and parks started and the process for doing so easier on the City’s publicly and privately owned vacant lots. A beta-version of an online map will be released in Spring 2014. For more information go to LAOpenAcres.org.

• I'm an active member of the LA Food Policy Council's Urban Agriculture Work Group steering committee where I have contributed to the development of legislative relationships and accomplishments.
