Healthy City/Advancement Project

Los Angeles, CA

Healthy City is an information + action resource that unites community voices, rigorous research and innovative technologies to solve the root causes of social inequity.

Healthy City is a project of Advancement Project, an innovative civil rights law, policy, and communications “action tank” that advances universal opportunity and a just democracy for those left behind in America.

The first of its kind in the country, our team consists of authorities in public policy, research, technology, planning and data analysis. We provide the public sector with actionable information such as data, maps, and service referrals through our easy-to-use online platform. Healthy City also partners directly with organizations to develop targeted strategies that fuel social change.

Our on-line platform,, increases access to data to help people working on the ground get accurate information about services as well as various demographic, health, and service data.

Our Community Research Lab portrays another side of Healthy City, providing the additional tools necessary to use data and research to create change. Launching in May, the Lab offers direct training and workshops to organizations and community leaders in Los Angeles County to improve their research capabilities and capacity.
