The Latino Coalition for a Healthy California (LCHC) is hosting our first advocacy day at the Capitol on April 28th. We invite partners and friends to join us in Sacramento to advocate for four priority bills that will help improve the health of our communities across California. We will be visiting legislators to discuss:
AB 1321 (Ting) aims to create access to fresh, California-grown fruits and vegetables for low-income families.
AB 1357 (Bloom) will increase access to clean drinking water and generate support for community-based diabetes prevention programs.
SB 4 (Lara) will extend access to health care for all regardless of immigration status
SB 23 (Mitchell) will generate critical support through CalWORKS for families with small children.
The day will be an opportunity to learn more about LCHC’s policy agenda and participate in fun events, but we’ll also break up into small groups so that we can prep participants on how the legislative advocacy process works and ensure that everyone feels confident speaking with their representatives. We hope you’ll join us for this important day!
