ENACT DAY 2020

Thursday April 30, 2020 | TBD

 

ENACT Day is a FREE event that brings together Californians from across the state to learn about health equity in California and develop policy advocacy skills. 

As health equity-focused organizations, the health, safety, and wellbeing of our communities is our top priority. Social distancing is one of the most important tools we as individuals can take to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), and in accordance with our local, state, and federal health experts, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person event and instead move to a virtual platform. As our elected officials work to respond to COVID as quickly as possible, the legislative session has been altered, given the online setting.

The ENACT Day Planning and Advisory Committee is working to develop a new model for this year’s ENACT event, to ensure to provide our community members an opportunity to voice their hopes and concerns to our elected officials, and to set us up for an even stronger in-person event next year. The committee has been in conversation with some of our electeds about ways they plan to stay in touch with their constituents, including live town halls on Facebook and Instagram, or Zoom meetings with smaller groups. The committee will keep meeting for the next few weeks to develop this event, and will keep you all updated when we have firm plans. For now, please know that Enact Day will convene in some form on April 30th.

 

At this time, we’d love to hear from you: 
  • Are there ways you want to engage online with our representatives?
  • Are there any issues that are pressing to your community at this time that are being overlooked?
  • How can we support you in advocating for yourselves and your communities?
