To all students interested in health equity and social justice:

 Do you see things in the communities you work with and/or are a part of that you wish were different?

  • Are you ready to take action?

 Join experienced Sound Alliance community organizers and students from across the Health Sciences this fall in UCONJ 624.

  • Learn the fundamentals of advocacy, organizing, and their ability to impact health.
  • Apply skills, gain confidence, & collaborate around a community-driven goal.
  • Work with local leaders to engage in community driven listening campaigns.
  • Address the social & structural injustices that contribute to & perpetuate health disparities.
