WHO WE ARE

Vaccine Access Across Tennessee

We envision a future in which everyone has what they need to be healthy and thrive. Regardless of health status, people have control over how they live and access comprehensive, quality and equitable care. A powerful, united health justice movement has aligned with the broader progressive movement to address factors that affect health and wellbeing, including housing, economic justice, and other social determinants of health. People have the option to receive effective, responsive care and resources within their local communities and from providers who reflect those communities. The health system is shaped by and responsive to the needs of all people. A sense of freedom permeates as individuals and their communities are able to envision and embody the lives that they want to lead.
