Prevention Institute alert: September 19, 2014

Take a stand for Berkeley vs. Big Soda, 9/26

Join the Bay Area public health community on Friday, September 26, to support Berkeley vs. Big Soda.

We expect Big Soda to spend $100 per Berkeley voter in an attempt to drown Measure D on Election Day. The beverage industry is all-in to defeat this vital public health measure--and the public health community needs to be all-in to win.

RSVP today to join us on September 26. Don’t miss this opportunity to--

  • Get connected: Network with other Bay Area public health advocates who’ve been working hard to push back against the food and beverage industry.
  • Get inspired: Learn from the leaders of Mexico’s successful campaign to pass a national tax on sugar-sweetened beverages.
  • Get serious about taking on Big Soda: Find out how you can support Berkeley vs. Big Soda over the next six weeks. If you’re able, we hope you’ll make a donation to the campaign or sign up to volunteer.

Election Day is right around the corner--and the time is now to take a stand for Berkeley vs. Big Soda.
