After the Oscar Grant Riot: What Makes A Healthy Community?

Okay, so I’ve come back with a non-profit organization for us.

Healthy Communities

And how rad is this? The Healthy Communities organization serves Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, Vallejo, Silicon Valley and San Francisco. You know, places you can get to on BART.

From their site:

Our mission is to decrease violence and health disparities in primarily the African American community, but also in other ethnic communities as well.  We shall accomplish this by collaborating with other community conscious organizations, churches, businesses, and individuals.

So…okay, here’s a start. I, for one, would be very interested in what this NPO has to advise regarding the Oscar Grant killing. So I’m going to keep searching around for solutions.
