We all know the feeling of standing in a grocery store aisle, feeling frustrated and overwhelmed by all the choices available.

New Plan Calls for Investing $360 Million in Increased Cigarette Tax Revenue in Hoosier Health

The American Heart Association has joined hundreds of other Indiana organizations and companies in the Raise It for Health campaign in support of a new plan to raise the state’s cigarette tax by $2 per-pack in the next state budget. The plan proposes to dedicate all of the increased revenue—$360 million in the first year alone—to urgent health causes facing Hoosier families and employers, including drug addiction, tobacco use and infant mortality.

One day while driving to shoot a video of our advocacy efforts at the most dangerous intersection in the Las Vegas Valley I saw a stranger in a mobility chair, Peggy, navigating a challenging sidewalk and something caught my eye.

New Mexico: Streets Built to Share

We all want and deserve to live in safe, healthy communities. Complete streets policies make communities and neighborhoods more livable by ensuring all people can get safely to where they need to go – work, school, the library, grocery stores, or parks. They also help people feel more connected to their neighbors, which improves quality of life.

GUEST BLOG: From My Heart - Sweethearts at the Cap!

Hello everyone!! This past month has been packed with senior activities at my school (lots of student council activities, homecoming preparation, and of course, homework and studying). Thankfully, I’ve also found a little time within all that to volunteer outside of school. We can all carve out a little time in our day or week to be an advocate for the people and causes we care so much about.
