This is what speaking up for wellness means to us.

Grantmaking is core to who we are as a foundation. But there’s so much more we can do to advance wellness in California. In addition to our dollars, we’re using our voice to speak out on issues that affect people’s health and wellness. Here you can learn more about how we’re thinking about our work, where we stand on issues, and what others are saying about our efforts.

Staff Perspectives

Running the Race for Social Justice

I view the work I do as a relay race—I’m running my leg of the race to advance civil rights and social justice while also seeing my work in terms of standing on the shoulders of those who came before us.


We’re raising our voices alongside allies to speak out on issues that influence the health and wellness of Californians.

We Are Not Alone!

I was proud to be in D.C. representing Cal Wellness. I was fired up and deeply moved by the young people leading this movement.
