Thank you for protecting the lives of young people across the country by adding your signature to our letter to stop the elimination of CDC’s youth violence prevention activities in the federal budget. It's working; your support has helped open a window of opportunity in DC. Help us maintain the momentum by asking a friend or colleague to add their name to our letter, too.
We have a very small amount of time in which to affect this process, and we need every voice to make a difference. We've gotten over 600 names, and we'd like to reach at least 750 signatures in the next week.
Can you send this message to a colleague?
This month, I signed on to a letter from Prevention Institute, asking Congress not to eliminate the CDC's youth violence prevention funding from the federal budget. A public health approach to violence saves lives and supports thriving communities. Will you join me and over 600 violence prevention advocates from across the country? You can sign on to the letter, here. You'll be joining national partners such as National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Safe States Alliance and local efforts such as the Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater Los Angeles.
Thank you for your continued action and for forwarding this email to your networks.
