Your zip code is more important to your health and life expectancy than your DNA. Over the past nine months, we have witnessed the inequality in the impact the novel coronavirus has had for different populations, communities, and neighborhoods. Those with the least resources have been most affected, often communities of color, and the pandemic has only heightened our awareness of the overall disparity in health outcomes. Where you live, where you work, where you eat, where you play - in sum, the built environment around you - has an enormous impact on your health.
The Center for Creative Land Recycling assists communities to transform abandoned and contaminated properties into parks, affordable housing, community gardens, new business space, and more. Redevelopment projects can offer a pathway to public health solutions most needed during a pandemic: equitable access to open space, healthy foods, and safe, affordable housing.
It is more important now than ever to provide communities with the tools and resources to transform health outcomes through redevelopment. Donate today to support us in this mission.
