Earlier this month, advocates from across the state came together to advocate for heart health and the issues they care most about.
A group of You’re the Cure advocates, coalition partners, and more joined the Association’s advocacy team in Albany for a Lobby Day – our first in person in 3 years. We first had a press conference on the importance of School Meals For All, Double Up Food Bucks, and tobacco control.
Then, we went out across the Capitol to meet with legislators and tell them why we support these important policies in New York. These advocates put a face and a story to why we must provide healthy food to New Yorkers and address tobacco use.
If you weren’t able to make it, but still want to share your story and reach out to your legislators, check out the School Meals Action Center for all the information you need to make your voice heard in Albany on this important issue!
