Transform911 Blueprint for Change

To increase access for wellbeing for both people served by the emergency response system and those who work within it, it’s critical that we reimagine 911. The Transform911 Blueprint for Change is the starting point for doing just that.

Led by our partners at the University of Chicago Health Lab, Transform911 is a national project to build a more robust and relevant public safety ecosystem that centers wellbeing for all. A diverse set of experts in health care, academia, government, emergency response and public safety, community advocacy, and more developed a Blueprint for Change with recommendations that are guided by a set of wellbeing principles.

The seven-point plan includes recommendations to transform 911 into a system that provides members of the public who are facing acute threats to their wellbeing with appropriate, equitable, relevant, immediate and around-the-clock relief from distress.


The system is rigged, and the solution isn’t just to create more programs for people harmed by these unfair systems. The solution is to reimagine these systems to make our country fairer and more equitable for everyone — which means ensuring that the places where we work, live, play and pray tap into people’s drive for wellbeing, instead of undermining wellbeing for some and enabling it for others.

That’s what we do.
