Description

#HealthyBlackPeople

This is a 50-minute workshop and discussion to address health disparities in the African-American communities. As a policy advocacy organization, we will introduce bills such as SB 300 which is the health warning label for sugar sweetened beverages and perform a mock legislation advocacy exercise with participants. We will bring in current and culturally relevant content about health disparities and solutions on an individual and collective level. Each participant will receive a certification of advocacy from CBHN and will be eligible to be a Passion Project Intern of CBHN.

This training is for all ages. We make it a priority to ensure that that information is well-rounded and catered to the population that is in the room. We believe the only way to empower people to empower themselves is to start off by giving them information and tools that is personal to them.
