Prep for Upcoming DC Session


The DC Council is gearing up for a busy new calendar year and we have some important work to do! Please join us for a short call January 20 at noon to learn details of our legislative agenda and how you can help.

Our policy agenda includes:

Shared Use of School Property - Support measures to enable the use of school recreation facilities for community physical activity after hours, including funding to incentivize and promote schools as a safe space for community recreation.

Put your two cents in now to tell DC Council to support shared use of school properties!

CPR as a High School Graduation Requirement - Require hands-only CPR training and AED instruction, consistent with American Heart Association guidelines, as a requirement for high school graduation.

Tobacco 21 - Raise the minimum legal age for the purchase of all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, to 21 years.

Tobacco Control Program Funding - Secure sustainable funding for District tobacco prevention and cessation programs that meet or exceed Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations.

Healthy Government Procurement - Enact policies to ensure that all food and beverage served by or purchased by District government meets nutrition standards consistent with those developed by the American Heart Association, or by the US Department of Health and Human Services.
