Thank you!June 19, 2017
Dear Colleague,Thank you so much for the great individual and organizational response to last week's Virtual Advocacy Day in support of the Prevention and Public Health Fund. On the Thunderclap alone, over 560 registrants reached an audience of over 772,000 via social media. Our backers' messages got shared and retweeted for and additional social reach of 652,976.
While the advocacy day is over, it is still critical to contact Members of Congress, particularly the Senate as they continue to work behind the senses on their health care bill. We remain extremely concerned it will contain a similar provision to one in the House-passed American Health Care Act, which repeals the Prevention Fund. Please continue to advocate and encourage your networks as well. Here are some resources to help in your advocacy:
- Prevention and Public Health Fund Detailed Information
- The Potential Impact of the President's Proposed FY 2018 Budget - By The Numbers
- Trust for America's Health: Take Action - Call and Tweet Members
- American Public Health Association: Take Action - Write to Members
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. Thanks for all that you do to protect prevention, and improve the public's health.
All the best,Tim Hughes
