When we #SpeakForHealth, we make a difference
A public health system that is fully funded and fully trained improves everyone’s health.
Now is your chance to take action. Join us as we #SpeakForHealth:
Step 1: Create your post
Create your #SpeakForHealth post on social media. Print this sign (PDF) and take a photo, and explain in your post why you support public health and why our efforts can’t be silenced. Use the hashtag #SpeakForHealth.
Feel free to use our sample posts:
- I #SpeakForHealth because I won’t stay silent as science is attacked. Public health needs to be free of political interference and remain evidence-based and grounded in science. http://bit.ly/2B8HAV8
- Public health cannot be silenced. I #SpeakForHealth because health care is a human right, and we need a fully funded public health system. http://bit.ly/2B8HAV8
- I want us to be the healthiest nation in one generation, so I #SpeakForHealth. I told Congress to fully fund the CDC and other health agencies, and you should too: http://bit.ly/2BLH2IA
