On June 5th, community advocates from up and down the state of California gathered in Sacramento for ENACT Day 2013. This annual advocacy day connects community representatives with elected officials to discuss the health issues that matter most to their communities. This year’s ENACT Day focused on policies to make California hospitals baby-friendly, establish a permanent statewide Safe Routes to School program, secure funding for safe places to play and be active, and provide nutrition training for child care providers. Whether or not you participated in this year’s ENACT Day, your voice matters and you don’t need to travel to Sacramento to make your voice heard. Join us for updates on ENACT Day bills and to discuss upcoming advocacy opportunities around Safe Routes to School, local and statewide soda tax proposals, and the Farm Bill:

Join us to learn about and discuss upcoming advocacy opportunities on these critical issues.
