Building Community Power

Praxis supports base building and power building community organizations working to improve equity and racial justice across the social determinants of health. Recognizing that political and economic power undergird systems, structures, policies, practices, and environments where people live, work, play, learn, and pray, we work closely with our community partners, seeking to transform current conditions towards equity. From lived experience, we understand that achieving long-term health, equity, and racial justice requires correcting power imbalances and centering the communities most impacted to ensure solutions fit community contexts and support power building for long-term change. Praxis supports community power building efforts through various initiatives, including: Communities of Praxis, Roots & Remedies, Fiscal Sponsorship, as well as Narrative Change and Community-Centered Communications.

Population(s) Served

Praxis works with institutions from the health, public health, urban planning, social work, policy advocacy, and related fields to increase their understanding and improve their practices of authentic collaboration with power-building and base-building community organizations. Praxis and our community partners seek to engage our institutional partners to advance transformational change to the systems, structures, policies, practices, and environments that impact equity and racial justice. To achieve this, Praxis engages in various activities, including: Creating forums for base-building and power-building community organizers to directly engage with institutional partners at the national/regional level and Participating on advisory boards of institutional partners and collaborators to elevate the framing of transformation for equity and racial justice across the determinants of health.

Population(s) Served

Children and youth

Praxis and our community partners understand that as we establish a dominant narrative that sees and values the diversity of our beautiful world and is grounded in concepts of equity and racial justice, we must develop the power to transform existing narratives rooted in an oppressive past. Praxis works with our community partners to establish the evidence that centering equity and community is the right path toward equity and racial justice. Praxis collaborates with our philanthropic partners to make a case for supporting the infrastructure and capacity of base-building and power-building community organizations as a strategy for improving equity and racial justice. To achieve this, Praxis engages in various activities, including: Co-creates knowledge with our power-building and base-building community partners that synthesize how organizers work to advance the broader goals of equity and racial justice across the determinants of health.
