New TWIHL: Equity in All Policies with Sarah de Guia

This week, my special guest is Sarah de Guia, Chief Executive Officer of ChangeLab Solutions. Along with Scott Burris, Wendy Parmet, Lance Gable, and Donna Levin, Sarah and I worked together on our report, Assessing Legal Responses to COVID-19, which was just published. Our broad discussion looks at the report’s terminology, general approach to equity, and local strategies for change, along with some specific examples drawn from the assessment.

Sarah earned her law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law and her bachelor’s degree in ethnic studies from the University of California, Berkeley. Before joining ChangeLab Solutions, Sarah worked as a health program director at Latino Issues Forum and a legislative analyst at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and thereafter at the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network, first as director of government affairs and then as executive director. She has authored many publications on the health of communities of color in California, oral health disparities, mental health, and Latino health.
