We are thrilled to report that Governor Raimondo signed our healthy school marketing bill into law on June 4th. This victory would not have been possible without the dedication and outreach of our You’re the Cure grassroots advocates. This campaign certainly had some twists and turns over the past couple of years, but we finally crossed the finished line and took another big step toward ensuring a healthy school environment for our children.

Thanks to your commitment and efforts, junk food and sugary drink advertising/marketing will no longer be allowed on school property effective September 1st of this year. We look forward to seeing this new law implemented.

As we pause to celebrate this win, we must also remember that our work isn’t over. We will be launching an exciting new campaign in the coming year aimed at supporting quality physical education in our schools. Keep an eye out for details over the summer.

Please take a minute to thank Governor Raimondo for supporting our #HealthyKidsRI campaign. Click the following link to send an email today: https://act.yourethecure.org/TOFZSI1
