BMore Champions4Change takes on Annapolis!

The new year brings a new legislative session in Annapolis. While this session - like everything else -might look different, it doesn’t deter us from our commitment to address the issues important to Maryland.

This year we’ll be hosting our first ever virtual Week of Advocacy. For the whole week of January 25th we’ll be hosting events to help advocates like you connect with your legislators on the issues most important to you!

Our legislative priorities for this session are to advocate for an increase in the tobacco tax, funding for tobacco control, Supplemental Nutrition Program (SNAP) funding, and other key issues to protect heart health. While legislators may not be able to meet face to face, they still need to hear from us.
