Legislative Initiatives

Black Health Matters, Transforming Lives and Communities Campaign

Our 2020 Legislative Initiative “Black Health Matters” was a collective chapter effort to campaign for health awareness and family advocacy. COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on African Americans across the United States. Statistics show higher rates of illness and death among minorities which demonstrates significant racial inequality in America. Our children were tasked to use their creativity to spark change in health care for African Americans. They could write a letter to their State Representative, create a spoken word video, or draw a poster.¬†Kudos to Chair Kimberly Orlandi and Co-Chair Mariba Smith-Woods. Thank you to our children and teens for their submissions. They were excellent!
