With You’re the Cure on the Hill 2015 fast approaching, we want you to know that you don’t have to be in Washington to make an impact. On May 11th and 12th, we’ll be working with advocates from all 50 states to contact their representatives and urge support for the common-sense, heart-healthy policies we need to reduce and eliminate cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The best part is, all you need to join in is your phone.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be letting you know about a quick, easy, fun way to connect with your lawmakers, friends, and family, and to share why being a You’re the Cure advocates is so important to you. After pledging online to take action, you’ll receive a text message on May 11th with a phone number that will automatically put you in touch with your Member of Congress. After hearing a few key points about why strong school nutrition standards and increased NIH funding are our top priorities, you’ll be patched through to deliver your message personally.
We’ll also be asking you to weigh in on social media, letting your representatives know directly that we’re here to support them on key issues, and hold them accountable when they fall short. The best part is, You’re the Cure advocates from across the country will be visiting congressional offices at the same time, delivering our pro-heart health message in person. We know that with our combined efforts, 2015 will be the best You’re the Cure on the Hill yet. Thanks for your support, and stay tuned for more.
