Advocacy Day 2017

 

Thank you to all of our dedicated advocates who made Advocacy Day 2017 a great experience! While many legislators were in caucus, we made our position known at the State House on issues such as:

  • Maintaining funding for the state breast and cervical cancer prevention and treatment program known as IBCCP at $11million

  • Vote yes for Tobacco 21 to raise the minimum purchase age for tobacco products and e-cigarettes to 21 years.
