About The Weaving Wisdom: Community Conversations Series:
LBLHEA centers collective community wisdom and traditional ways of knowing. Our communities are capable of defining health on their own terms and advocating for the necessary changes they want to see. We work to create opportunities, such as the Weaving Wisdom series, for the coalition to network, gain tools, expand their knowledge, build capacity, identify solutions, and make their voices heard and represented in policy-making.
