ACS formally began its racial equity work as one of four organizations participating in The Horizon Foundation’s first Howard County Equity Collaborative. Other organizations engaging in this work include the African-American Community Roundtable (AACR), Equity4HC, and the Howard County Chinese School.

Our cohort of the Howard County Equity Collaborative worked to:
  • Advance policies and systems change that promise equitable health outcomes and increasing engagement with diverse leaders.

  • Elevate the voices of leaders from diverse communities in the county to highlight and address health disparities in the community.

  • Build the capacity of community organizations to organize for health equity and systems change.
