Summary note:
"This updated and revised edition of a highly praised volume provides meaningful insights into the systems of inequality in the United States - such as race, class, and gender - that impact health. Updated versions of a number of the original chapters, as well as new chapters and appendixes, address areas such as using community organizing to influence policy; using the arts in community building and organizing; online activism; and the role of cultural humility and systems change in building effective partnerships between local health departments and community residents."--BOOK JACKET.
