Can talking about health instead of punishment change the conversation about incarceration policies? We will share health impact assessment (HIA) as a research tool that has successfully shifted the frame and contributed to policy wins like California’s Proposition 47. Participants will be introduced to the six step HIA process, with a focus on community engagement and communication tools. Through discussion with researchers and community organizers, we will explore how HIA can contribute to specific campaigns for justice.
