AHA's Top Three Issues for Mississippi's 2021 Session

As a You're the Cure advocate, we know you value speaking up for policies to help build healthier communities. That's why we want to give you a heads up that the Mississippi Legislature is scheduled to start session on January 5, 2021.

We invite you to advocate alongside us, as we ask lawmakers to:

  1. Grow the Good by funding SNAP incentives that provide matching dollars to participating retailers and farmers markets for SNAP recipients to purchase additional fresh fruits and vegetables.
  2. Put Water Within Reach For Students by ensuring water bottle filling stations are placed in all newly constructed schools and schools undergoing major renovations, as well as allowing students to carry water bottle to schools.
  3. Improve Access to Health Care by protecting and expanding Medicaid.

Stay tuned for future You're the Cure alerts for timely, simple, effective ways to reach out to your lawmakers for their support on these issues. Also, register to kick off session with us virtually on Wednesday, January 6th at 11 A.M.

Together, we can help Mississippians lead healthier, longer lives through policy change.
