Advocacy

QCH fosters a culture that encourages staff and participants to engage in a variety of advocacy and social justice efforts, around issues that directly impact our communities. Participants and neighbors join us in rallies, marches and public demonstrations, staff are active members of numerous coalitions, and advocacy and organizing efforts are incorporated into our program activities. Our work allows us to engage in policy discussions at the city, state, and federal level, because it enables us to speak from the weighted experience of working directly with thousands of people in the neighborhoods where they live and work.
