Equity in Action Starter Kit
The Equity in Action Starter Kit was created as a personal toolbox for Coalitions to utilize when navigating the important work of addressing the intersection of racial injustice and poor health outcomes within the community. This starter kit is not “all-inclusive,” but it does offer specific action items to help provide a starting point. Use the content in this Starter Kit to either begin or advance your Racial Social Health Equity journey. The starter kit can also be found through the PEACE Training Series link below.

P.E.A.C.E. Training Series

(Promoting Equity Among Communities Effectively) Training Series provided a special opportunity for various SC health coalitions to collaborate and share knowledge, exchange ideas, and gain a better understanding of racial equity in order to better serve communities throughout South Carolina. The main goal of the series was to help coalition members integrate racial justice concepts into their community coalition processes by introducing relevant, actionable tools and frameworks. Three innovative statewide organizations came together to provide collaborative leadership and collective funding for this series: Wholespire, Healthy People Healthy Carolinas, and Blueprint for Health.
