#DC poet @WasssupTe has a message for his community: drink water & ditch soda. In #StopBuyinIt, he urges city lawmakers to vote for a sugary drink tax to raise money for much-needed programs. Thanks @knewfornews w/@usnews for reporting. #DontMuteMyHealth https://t.co/kl68WwlxCN

11/11 @CAgovernor @GavinNewsom, take a stance - join us, our co-sponsors @CaliforniaWalks, @American_Heart @AARPCA & @SafeRoutesCA & all the supporters in protecting our communities by prioritizing #safestreets for our most vulnerable. We need accountability - Sign #SB127 🖊️✔️

10/11 Signing #SB127 is urgent and cannot be further delayed - this is coming at the expense of injuries and deaths on our streets, healthcare costs due to lack of safe places to be physically active, and poor air quality due to too many cars on the road.

7/11 #SB127 holds Caltrans accountable to its own internal #completestreets policies and goals set over a decade ago, with little progress made to addressing #safety and accessibility needs of all road users.

5/11 Nearly 400 public schools are within 500 ft of a state highway affected by SB 127; this could mean 1000s of children walking and biking safely every day to school instead of the over 50% of kids that are driven daily. This is a *key* for parents: https://t.co/Cg9WaCAcnj

2/11 Over 80 organizations representing these priorities are in strong support - knowing all to well the need for #safestreets and prioritizing children's safety over fast traffic, as well as doing everything possible to meet state #climate goals. https://t.co/Ab41x0Kr7U
