Tell state lawmakers about your vision for the future, and what matters to you
Register for ENACT Day – Monday, May 1, 2017!
As we navigate an unfamiliar and threatening national political landscape, it’s critical that our state legislators and leaders hear from us. California Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon so eloquently stated, “California was not a part of this nation when its history began, but we are clearly now the keeper of its future.” Our policymakers need to hear from us about our vision for the future, what matters in our communities and why. That’s what ENACT Day is all about.
Mark your calendars – ENACT Day 2017 is on the horizon! ENACT Day is a prime opportunity for Californians of all ages and backgrounds to travel to Sacramento, build leadership and advocacy skills, and connect with legislators about our community’s needs and priorities. Participants will learn about key bills that influence health, safety, and equity in California; network with community leaders and fellow advocates; and meet policymakers to tell them what’s working and what should be working better. We’re still shaping the day’s agenda and want to hear from you about what issues you would like to see included in this year’s ENACT day. Email us at Vanessa@preventioninstitute.org by March 15th to share your community’s health and safety priorities.
Last year’s ENACT Day brought over 200 Californians – including more than 40 youth -- to the capitol, representing more than half of California’s counties.
