A Springboard for Equitable Recovery & Resilience in Communities Across America
Across America and Beyond, our quest to thrive has grown more difficult as we struggle and suffer through spiraling crises. Generations before us have endured sweeping adversity and sometimes found the strength to make great strides toward well-being and justice.
This Springboard shows how the immense resilience in America’s communities can propel us to organize local and nationwide action around one unifying and measurable expectation: All people and places thriving. No exceptions.
The Springboard explores what it will take to emerge from the crises of 2020 with greater resilience, humanity, and direction
This Springboard is designed to help us open a new chapter in America’s quest for well-being and justice—to propel a movement that will match the high stakes of this legacy moment.
The guiding framework used in this Springboard does not tell us what to do or how to act. It simply organizes the things that all people and places need in order to thrive. This same framework has been incorporated into the Healthy People 2030 Objectives for the nation, as well as the forthcoming Surgeon General’s Report on Community Health and Economic Prosperity. And it fits seamlessly with a uniform set of Well-Being in the Nation (WIN) Measures that are freely available to communities across the country. Most importantly, it is being embraced by a growing network of fellow system stewards.
Advancing a Thriving Movement
America’s movement for well-being and justice can never be codified in a single playbook. Yet, it can spring forward with great force and direction if we pursue our priorities, together, to make change happen where it counts.
How could this Springboard propel swift change for equitable recovery and resilience? How could it guide your own work? How can you join with others to advance an agenda that isn’t yours alone? And how can you create openings for others to bring their assets into this work?
