In a community where approximately 75 percent of the population identifies as an ethnic or racial minority and where more than 35 languages are spoken in 1.8 square miles, Chelsea’s diverse community members come together to promote better health for all. Residents, including many youth, are taking back their environment and boosting health by reducing diesel fuel emissions, reclaiming the waterfront, and improving the energy efficiency and indoor air quality of homes. A community policing model was developed to build trust within the community, and 60 other communities have since adopted the model.
