Share |

The Connecticut Public Health Association (CPHA) Advocacy Committee advocates its public health initiatives by educating CPHA members, public constituencies, and policymakers. Advocacy activities include:

  • Monitoring the status of pending legislation significant to the Advocacy Committee’s public health priorities;
  • Preparing fact sheets (position papers) and legislative updates;
  • Presenting written testimony on behalf of the CPHA before the Connecticut General Assembly regarding proposed legislation;
  • Organizing lobbying efforts and grassroots advocacy through outreach with our Capwiz software, through legislative education programs, and through telephone and letter-writing campaigns;
  • Organizing and collaborating with CPHA members to support the Advocacy Committee’s public health initiatives;
  • Maintaining relationships with leadership of the Connecticut General Assembly’s Public Health Committee and other relevant Committees, the Executive Branch of the State of Connecticut and the Connecticut Department of Public Health;
  • Collaborating with other organizations to ensure that public health is a priority in the legislative and policymaking process.
