We're sure you've heard the saying, the more things change, the more things stay the same. Well, that definitely can be said with advocacy!
As we continue to move towards a digital world for influencing and engaging with elected officials, some things like legislative processes are not changing. Kim Chidester VanVeen and I invite you to revisit some foundational state-level advocacy processes and grassroots tactics with us on our next You're the Cure Southeast chat. Register to join us on Monday, August 24 at 11:30 AM ET / 10:30 AM CT.
This is a timely conversation, as we anticipate many southeastern states to be in special session this fall and we'll be counting on the help of You're the Cure advocates like you to speak up for public policies that help build a world full of healthier, longer lives.
We hope you'll join us on August 24th! If this time doesn't work for you, we encourage you to send in your RSVP to ensure you receive a copy of the call notes.
