COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & ADVOCACY: IMPACT

BBK believes that building power is opening and expanding opportunities for parents/caregivers to become active voices and influencers of personal and collective change.

We believe that parents/caregivers can create systems of education and health that promote resilient households and communities that span across generations.

Program Development
BBK’s community engagement and advocacy begins with partnering with families to bolster their leadership skills so that their voices and actions are at the forefront of the development and implementation of our advocacy strategies.

Impact
Community Engagement & Advocacy works to impact Richmond/West Contra Costa County on two levels: locally through service on boards, commissions and committees and civic participation and regional public policy.
