Community organizing brings Latina/o families together to enhance repertoires of culturally relevant practices to promote health and curriculum. The Healthy Schools Campaign, a 4-year environmental justice partnership between public health researchers and Latina/o organizations in 2 neighborhoods of Chicago, was formed to confront the epidemics of asthma and obesity in children that result in premature death. The partnership supported diverse organizing and addressed health inequity through inquiry with parents who created knowledge, took action, and reflected on outcomes in schools and in the community. Community funds of knowledge were created and exchanged through the processes of "compromiso," "confianza," and "colaboracion."
