Community in Action

Communities across Pinellas have been, and continue to build solutions for race equity issues. Neighborhood by neighborhood, and city by city change is all around us. Collaborative practices which uplift the work of community champions are a powerful way to improve life for all.

Connecting All the Dots

Residents have been taking care of one-another and fighting systemic issues for generations. The Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg is the new kid on the block, and knows that trust has to be earned. The first few years were devoted to leaning in, listening and building relationships, and this work is ongoing.

While not every organization wants or needs anything from the Foundation, we aspire to paint a complete picture of networks and resources so that, when aligned, partners can decide if collaboration can maximize progress towards their goals.

Grow the Network

Help the Foundation to accelerate movement building by sharing who is active in the work.
