Strategic Alliance Alert: April 17, 2014

Join us May 29 in Sacramento for ENACT Day 2014

All Californians deserve the opportunity to live in healthy and safe communities, and we want YOU to join us in Sacramento to carry that message to policymakers and the media. Register here!

On May 29th, advocates from across the state will converge at the Capitol to speak up for a healthier, safer and more equitable California. ENACT Day is a great opportunity for community coalitions, grassroots organizers and advocates to develop policy advocacy skills. Attendees will:

•    Learn about proposed legislation to improve access to healthy food and safe physical activity
•    Participate in trainings from communications and advocacy experts on how to share your success stories and provide non-partisan education to policymakers and the media
•    Join a rally and media event for a healthier, more equitable California on the Capitol steps
•    Meet with your legislators or their staff about your community’s health issues and priorities
•    Network with community health advocates from across the state

Spanish translation and accommodations for people with disabilities will be provided. Breakfast and lunch will be available for all, including those with dietary restrictions.

All we ask in return is for your passion, your participation and an optional donation to support the costs associated with the day and sponsor youth who otherwise would be unable to attend! Space is limited so register now.
