Thank You for Celebrating With Us!
On Thursday September 27, 2012 Street Level Health Project celebrated 10 years as a grassroots safety net provider for underserved uninsured immigrants in the Bay Area. Local champions for health equity including District 9 Representative Congresswoman Barbara Lee and The California Endowment’s Dr. Anthony Iton made speeches highlighting the organization’s innovative health model that both increases health access and addresses root causes of poor health among marginalized populations of low-wage, monolingual, immigrant workers.
The celebration, which took place at the Oakland Museum of California, recognized community leaders who have supported immigrant communities in Alameda County in the areas of health and justice. Recipients included La Clinica de la Raza, Centro Legal de la Raza, and former director of Alameda County Health Care Services Agency David Kears.
The theme of the anniversary event was “Celebrating Community, Hope, and Dreams”.
