Strategic Plan

The Consumer Health Foundation’s (CHF) 2021-2031 strategic plan will guide our work over the next 10 years. We envision Black people and people of global majority living powerfully, abundantly and beautifully in healthy, self-determined communities free of social, economic and political violence.

We achieve our vision by centering the leadership and expertise of Black people and people of the global majority in the Washington, DC region who live at the sharpest intersection of systems of oppression, in particular race, class and gender identity. We build relationships to transform how philanthropic, nonprofit and government resources are deployed to disrupt institutions and structures that perpetuate anti-black racism and other intersectional discriminatory harms. We share power and decision-making and we support organizations that build the people’s power to demand and achieve justice. We take risks that others are not willing to take and we are comfortable seeding bold ideas and sparking innovation. We speak our truth and support platforms for communities to tell their own truths, and we heal ourselves and facilitate healing in our communities.

The strategic plan includes the following strategic goal area:

COMMUNITY POWER
Providing the resources, financial and otherwise, to build and sustain the people’s power to demand and achieve justice.

HEALING
Creating spaces and practices that prioritize rest, rejuvenation and healing from the spectrum of racialized harms which range from systemic racism to everyday aggressions.

REPARATIONS & ECONOMIC JUSTICE
Supporting economic justice movements, including the movement to pay reparations to Black people who are owed a debt as a result of historic and contemporary racial harms

CULTURE
Shifting narratives about anti-Black racism and its ill impacts on society and creating new narratives that center the voices of people who live at the sharpest intersection of systems of oppression such as race, class and gender identity.

INSTITUTIONS & STRUCTURES
Disrupting institutions and structures that perpetuate anti- Black racism and other intersectional discriminatory harms.

We hope we have developed a plan that is as radical as the moment demands.
