Equity on the Mall 2019

California State Capitol
March 6 – 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the California State Capitol for a healthier San Joaquin Valley! Together, we are a powerful #ValleyRising. See the 2019 Policy Platform and event photos below.

Equity on the Mall is an annual day of democracy in action to close the divide between the San Joaquin Valley residents and policymakers. Organized by the San Joaquin Valley Health Fund, The Center at Sierra Health Foundation and community partners, Equity on the Mall includes a powerful program at the west steps of the Capitol with remarks by elected representatives and community leaders, music, dance, spoken word and an equity platform on some of the most pressing issues impacting communities in the San Joaquin Valley. The Valley is Rising!
