Why is advocating with the American Heart Association important to you? 

As an early childhood education advocate, I'm passionate about championing strong public policies that support children and their families and working to break down disproportionate disparities. The American Heart Association has proven preventative measures to combat obesity and heart disease, diabetes and the development of quality systems of care for marginalized communities. 

We all do better when our children have access to nutritious food, quality healthcare and high-quality early learning opportunities, including home visiting, quality subsidized child care and state-funded Pre-K to support families and working mothers.
