We're excited to announce that we've recently simplified our name to Tracking California, and added a tagline in order to better communicate who we are and why we do what we do. Our program is now:
While our name has changed, our work remains the same: by mobilizing data to identify and understand pollution and disease, we're helping Californians take action to create healthier communities. Our core work in "tracking" is compiling and analyzing data about public health and the environment, and then helping our partners and the public to use the data to take action to reduce pollution and improve public health in California communities.
One of our core values is that of health equity - we work to ensure that all Californians, regardless of location, identity, or income, have the opportunity to live in healthy communities protected from environmental hazards. To achieve this goal, we work in partnership with community groups, government agencies, researchers, and health advocates to shine a spotlight on environmental hazards and other factors that may be impacting community health.
