Today, You’re the Cure Advocates from across Texas are in Austin to help advance the American Heart Association’s legislative agenda. There are over a dozen volunteers that will meet with key legislators on our priority issues like Smoke-Free Texas, improving physical education in schools, and increasing funding for prevention programs.
But, their presence alone isn’t enough. Lawmakers need to hear from you back home to amplify our message. All you have to do is click here to tell your lawmaker to support the AHA’s key issues. Here’s what else you can do:
1. When you click on the link to take action add a personal message on why preventing heart disease is important to you. Legislators need to hear from real people on the devastating affects of heart disease and stroke.
2. Become our friend on Facebook. Just go to http://www.facebook.com/ and search for the group or fan page “You’re the Cure – South Central Affiliate”
3. Follow us on Twitter; just search for YouretheCureTX and get up to the minute blurbs from the Capitol.
Check back soon for photos from today and commentary from volunteers and staff!
