Community Collaborative

Welcome to the Community Collaborative!

The Community Collaborative is a collective of members from across sectors who initially came together to co-design COVID-19 vaccine implementation. Now its focus is on recovery efforts with the goal of eliminating further harms on Black, Indigenous and communities of color, and all those facing harm due to systemic racism and oppression. The Community Collaborative ensures an equity and social justice lens is applied in the Department of Health’s (DOH) planning and decision-making opportunities.

We will continue to prioritize and center communities most impacted by health inequities, by honoring their labor and voices in our decision-making process, while simultaneously creating space to foster collaboration with health care staff, and public health agencies. This site will provide meetings, newsletter sign-up and details about past and upcoming Community Collaborative meetings and workgroups.

If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, we would love to connect. Please contact the lead for the Community Collaborative or email our team at
