Louisiana Digital Day of Action 4/27

Ashley Hebert, Government Relations Director, and I invite you to join us Tuesday, April 27th for the American Heart Association's 2021 Louisiana Digital Day of Action, when You're the Cure advocates across the state will email, tweet, and call their state lawmakers in support of building a healthier Louisiana. Right now, we expect to focus specifically on asking legislators to support House Bill 132, Water Bottle Filling Stations in Schools. The legislation would ensure water bottle filling stations are placed in all newly constructed schools and schools undergoing major renovations ($100k+ worth). We're thrilled Rep. Vincent Pierre of Lafayette Parish is championing the issue! Click here to register now.

How the event will go: 

  • 9:00 - 9:30 AM Virtual Kick-off. Join us online to review the day's itinerary, discuss our policy ask, and see how easy it will be to take action throughout the day, whether you're participating from work, your couch, or home office. 
  • 10:00 - 12:00 PM Take Action. We'll send you a couple of emails during this time slot, providing you with links to easily email, tweet, and call your lawmakers in support of greater access to water bottle filling stations in schools. 
  • 12:00 - 1:00 PM Lunch & Learn Webinar. Jump back online with us to hear from special guest speakers about the need for improved water access in schools and how House Bill 132 can help.

We hope this digital event empowers you to take part wherever you are, whether it's from your desk, couch, or on your lunch break, as we advocate together for policies that help all Louisianans lead healthier, longer lives. Sign up now!
