The color of red invaded the Arkansas Capitol on Thursday, February 5th. The American Heart Association held a Wear Red Day celebration, unveiled the 2015 Survivors Gallery, and hosted an Advocacy Lunch and Learn on our legislative priorities.
Headline speakers included First Lady Susan Hutchinson, legislative sponsors Sen. Joyce Elliot and Rep. Charlotte Douglas, and volunteer leaders Elizabeth Banko (Go Red For Women Chair) and Vickie Wingfield (State Advocacy Committee Chair).
Over 100 participants heard from our special guests and learned the inspiring story of 8 Heart Disease and Stroke survivors. Around 30 volunteers participated in an Advocacy Lunch and Learn to learn more about our legislative priorities and how advocates can share their voice with their elected officials.
