On Friday, June 3rd, Oklahoma City AHA Advocacy staff members participated in H&8th Night Market, a street event created to bring the community together to enjoy live music, food trucks and street vendors.
H&8th was an exciting opportunity for AHA Advocacy staff to engage a diverse demographic and discuss childcare nutrition and physical activity legislation with doctors, public health workers, and teachers. AHA Advocacy staff were able to connect with younger individuals who were receptive and eager to get involved with volunteer efforts. OKC Advocacy staff collected over 100 signatures in support of increasing nutrition and physical education standards in early childcare centers. OKC Advocacy staff were successful in reaching a solid base and raising awareness on this important issue successfully.
