Expanding our Advocacy Efforts

Your voice is a powerful tool. When hundreds or thousands of You’re the Cure advocates speak out, decision makers listen. And now, we’re expanding our reach.


We know you care about creating healthier communities for your family and friends. While we’ve been doing that through policy change, working with our elected officials and government contacts, another group at AHA has been working directly with food companies and the restaurant industry to ensure we have healthier food options. We can be even more effective together, so we’re excited to join forces and welcome the activists from that group into our You’re the Cure family.

What do we do now?

We can continue to advocate for healthy communities through both policy and industry changes. You can make a difference in your local grocery stores and restaurants as well as in your government.

What does this mean for you?

You’ll continue to see opportunities to reach out to lawmakers on all our priority issues. You’ll also have the chance to contact company executives to speak up for more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and for less sugar, salt, and saturated fat in your food. Together, we’ll continue to stand up for physical activity and healthy living.

We all have the power to make a difference – to be a part of the change toward building healthier communities and saving lives.

Are you with me?
