Rally for a Healthier Tomorrow: Laying the Foundation for a 21st Century Local Public Health System

Thu May 26 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Advocates and local public health supporters will be gathering to celebrate our recent progress and to call for the creation of a 21st Century Local Public Health System by passing the SAPHE 2.0 Bill.

It has been three years since the release of the recommendations of the Special Commission on Local and Regional Public Health, and significant progress has been made towards improving our local public health system. However, we need YOU to help bring us across the finish line! Come and show your support for local public health and the SAPHE 2.0 Bill.

11am – Rally & Speaking Program (Location: State House Steps)

12pm – Advocacy 101 – Join MPHA staff to learn how to work with your elected officials to support issues you care about. (Location: Ashburton Park Entrance of MA State House on Bowdoin Street)

12:30pm – State House Visit – Make the most of your visit to Boston and head into the State House to visit your legislator’s office and voice your support for building a 21st century local public health system!
