Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger
Vaishnavi’s vision for a Culture of Health is to eliminate barriers and break down structural racism so that everyone has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of where they come from. Currently in the United States, where we live—and which neighborhood we grew up in—is directly tied to the opportunities we have. In the same city, one neighborhood lifts children and families out of poverty, while the next traps them in poverty for generations. Vaishnavi’s work focuses on examining the root causes of inequity and eliminating barriers to create equitable, healthy, and thriving communities.
