Join Us for PA Advocacy Day!

Make plans to join us on Monday, April 20th as we gather at the State Capitol in Harrisburg, PA to meet with lawmakers to talk about important public policies to help reverse the effects of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Advocates from across PA will meet with their legislators to advocate support for strengthening the Clean Indoor Air law to include NO exemptions and reducing smoking rates by increasing the tobacco excise tax. We'll give you the tools and the resources - all you have to do is show up!
