GC Mission

Grassroots Change empowers grassroots leaders to successfully build and sustain movements that improve health and safety at the community, state, and national levels. Public health movements grow from passion and the commitment to create real change in our nation’s health and safety. But effective movements need more than passion – they need smart strategy and the skills to connect and communicate. Grassroots Change connects dedicated leaders with the training, research and tools they need to advance their efforts on diverse public health issues, such as healthy families, violence prevention, and environmental justice.

Preemption Watch, a project of Grassroots Change, helps advocates better understand and counter preemption. Our bi-weekly newsletter provides timely coverage of threats by state and issue.
