The North Carolina General Assembly has convened for the 2021 legislative long session. Help us welcome legislators to Raleigh and introduce the important issues we will be talking about this legislative session. Those issues include:
- Increase funding for tobacco use prevention and cessation programs and services
- Amend North Carolina’s tobacco youth access law to create parity with federal law
- Increase the availability of healthy foods in our communities through funding for school nutrition programs and food banks
- Increase opportunities for North Carolinians to live active lives by addressing transportation funding mechanisms that limit funding opportunities for bicycle and pedestrian projects
We welcome you to add a few lines to the message introducing yourself. Being an advocate means building relationships with your elected officials, and this is a great way to start!Take Action!
