EmPOWERED to Serve™: Getting to Know Advocacy

EmPOWERED to Serve™ is a platform inspired by American Heart Association volunteers around the country who are passionate about driving change through health justice and empowerment in their communities. Communities need localized solutions that will help individuals and families escalate beyond poverty and achieve improved life outcomes. No one knows the changes needed in a community as well as the members themselves.

Everything we do begins and ends with our mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. The American Heart Association’s advocacy program works to advance important public policies that will help communities. We work on policies with the help of our You’re the Cure advocates at the local, state, federal and global levels. We couldn’t do this work without the help and support of our volunteer advocates.
