We have some interesting campaigns we are looking at running this fall/winter. Your support will help us communicate with lawmakers the importance of passing legislation that will improve the health of all Oklahomans.

Comprehensive Smoke-Free Policy.  We are building strong coalition support for new smoke free legislation, and Oklahoma is due for a revamp of its current statewide Smoke Free laws.  This year we are looking to: ensure that ALL workplaces are smoke-free, including bars, exclude vaporizers from all workplace, and close the loopholes allowing smoking in restaurants.  

Healthy Food Financing.  We will be working to make sure that everyone in every neighborhood will have access to healthy food options by supporting investment in healthy corner stores and grocery stores.

Early Childhood Education.  This is something we have been working on for several years now: making sure that childcare centers are required to limit the amount of TV screen time children get, and ensure that children under their care get enough physical activity.  We feel very strongly about how important this is in our children's development, and we are not going to let this fight go.  

Do you have a personal story or connection related to one of our key issues that you would like to share?  We would love to hear from you. Please email Heyward at heyward.whetsell@heart.org or call 501-725-7944.
