Join us for Advocating for Heart at the Texas Capitol on March 18 to advocate for increased grocery access to prevent childhood obesity. Youth advocates are encouraged to join us over their spring break!
Healthy eating decreases the risk of obesity and heart disease, but access to healthy food is limited for many Texas families. More than 3.4 million children and adults throughout Texas do not have a grocery store in their community and are often forced to go without healthy food. You can help change this!
Join us on March 18 to advocate for solutions to help all Texans access healthy food and prevent childhood obesity.
What: Advocating for Heart
When: Wednesday, March 18, 11:30 am to 4:00 pm
Where: Texas Capitol
Who: Advocates of all ages – youth and adults
The Advocating for Heart event will begin with an issue overview and interactive advocacy training. We will then break into groups and meet with legislative offices.
Since this will be during spring break for many students, youth advocates are encouraged to attend with their parents!
